While we're getting caught up in the 2nd District race we shouldn't forget about the fund raising in Nebraska's other two Congressional districts.
In the 3rd District, Congressman Adrian Smith has so far raised $317,000 for the 2010 campaign, has $379,000 cash on hand, and raised $128,000 this quarter.
His Democrat challenger, Rebekah Davis, has raised $7,000 total, has $5,800 cash on hand and raised $5,400 for the quarter.
(No word on how she compares herself, a'la Tom White, with other 21st CENTURY challengers...)
Then in the 1st District, Congressman Jeff Fortenberry raised $64,600 for the quarter, $212,500 total for the 2010 campaign and has $541,000 cash on hand.
And get this! Fortenberry's Democrat challenger has raised zilch! Nada! Nuthin! Can you believe it, I mean (hold on)...(What? I can't hear you...Huh?....Oh...)
Um, Fortenberry would seem to be in the cat bird's seat.
