Tim Walberg's Third Quarter Fundraising

Congressman Walberg's fundraising data from the third quarter of 2007 is now available online.

Short version: Walberg only raised a total of $139,535.73. That's up from the $119,000 he raised in the second quarter, but still nothing compared to what David Nacht raised that quarter or what state Senator Mark Schauer raised, about $220,000.

Walberg received about $102,000 from individual contributors and about $37,000 from PACs and other political groups.

Here's the detailed summary page:

27. Cash On Hand At Close Of The Reporting Period (25 - 26) 328121.14

His $328,000 cash-on-hand is still better than Schauer, but he's been at this a lot longer, too. If I were him, I would be a little worried about not being able to compete in the "money race."

The list of contributors (PACs, etc. and individuals who contribute more than $200) may be seen here, and the list of campaign expenditures can be seen here. Sometime later, I'll go through and get a count on in-state contributions and I'll look for significant names. I already noticed DeVos and Abraham in the contributors list, and Mark Valente got $300.00 from the campaign.

Anyone see anything interesting?

Labels: , , ,

There are some notable names on Walberg's list that demonstrate he is making huge inroads in Battle Creek. Henkel (auto dealer) Hettinger (works for the city's economic development arm) and William Lamothe is the former head of Kellogg's cereal. All three of these men are very important and respected in their community.

Walberg is going to whoop on Schauer.
While that may be true, once you leave Battle Creek no one knows who those people are. I recognized several influential people on Schauer's list that you may or may not know. I think its a little early to tell who is going to "whoop" who.
The few Battle Creek people would give money to ANY candidate with an R after thier name. They contribute to everyone, they're extremely wealthy. Hettinger really suprises me. Walberg voted against the airport and has pretty much thumbed his nose at Battle Creek. He wouldn't publically get involved with Schwarz so I can't understand why he's so high on Walberg, he even hosted a fund raiser for Wally.

Walberg ISN'T making inroads in Battle Creek, he's pretty much just tolerated or dispised in the Cereal City. The smart GOP money here is waiting for Schwarz to decide or will probably support Schauer.
