With Rematch Looming, Ferguson Targets Debt

Posted February 13, 2007 at 10:51am

Rep. Mike Ferguson (R) is asking for a little love from his supporters on Valentine’s Day, with a fundraiser. Ferguson has his heart set on getting $1,000 from political action committees and $500 from individuals.

The Capitol Hill Club event is set for noon, with the contributions expected to help retire a $240,000 debt and build his war chest for a possible rematch with Linda Stender (D), who has announced her intention to run again next year after losing in November by just more than 3,200 votes.

Ferguson’s campaign account reported $71,870 in cash on hand to close 2006.
