Another big quarter for GOP’s Allen West: $838,449 more for Klein challengeby George Bennett | April 14th, 2010
Republican congressional hopeful Allen West, whose viral YouTube video helped him raise $677,586 in the last quarter of 2009 and gain national attention, raised $838,449 during the first quarter of 2010, his consultant said.
West has raised more than $2 million overall for his challenge of U.S. Rep. Ron Klein, D-Boca Raton. West’s campaign, which has spent heavily on a direct-mail effort, has more than $1.1 million cash on hand, consultant Ed Brookover said this morning.
Klein had nearly $2.4 million cash on hand as of Dec. 31. He hasn’t released a first-quarter report. Reports are due Thursday.
