Fundraising Totals Rolling In

Today is the deadline for members of Congress to report their first-quarter fundraising totals. David Cicilline, as reported in this space last week, has raised almost $125,000.

That puts him on the lower end for the freshman class, according to some preliminary numbers reported by the New York Times here. But Cicilline, of course, is in the minority party, which makes raising money a lot harder. So the better measure is probably his fellow freshman Democrats - all eight of them.

Figures for four of those colleagues are on the Federal Election Commission's web site, as of the time of this post, and Cicilline tops three of them. Representative Bill Keating, the Massachusetts Democrat who represents the South Shore and Cape Cod, raised $114,000. Representative Hansen Clarke of Michigan raised just $48,000. And Representative John Carney of Delaware pulled in a whopping $6,000.

Freshman Democrat Cedric Richmond of Louisiana pulled in $162,000 in the first quarter.

Cicilline has always been a strong fundraiser. Looks like he's on track to do well this cycle, despite some bad press back home.
