Chabot has double the $$$ as Driehaus
No shocker here... Seven-term U.S. Rep. Steve Chabot is leading his opponent in the money race.
Chabot, a Republican from Westwood, submitted his latest campaign finance report to the Federal Election Commission last night. Deadline is midnight tomorrow.
According to his report, Chabot raised $1,118,273 last year, including $531,136 that he raised during the last three months of 2007, during which he hosted President Bush for a fundraiser. Chabot's campaign spent $355,609 in all last year, leaving him with $1,002,614 in the bank.
State Rep. Steve Driehaus, a Democrat from Price Hill, submitted his FEC report on Sunday.
According to Driehaus' report, his campaign raised $479,693 last year, including $191,848 during the last three months of 2007. His campaign, however, only spent $61,031 last year, leaving him with $418,662 in the bank.
Still... Driehaus' $418,662 is less than half the $1,002,614 that Chabot has.
