John Barrow Raises $580,000 in Second Quarter
Rep. John Barrow, a Georgia Democrat and perpetual GOP target, raised $580,000 in the second quarter, according to figures provided first to CQ Roll Call.
Barrow’s three-month haul brings his total cash on hand to $1.9 million as of June 30.
One of the most moderate Democrats in the House, Barrow is running for re-election in a district Mitt Romney carried by 12 points in 2012. He faces construction company owner Rick Allen, who earned the GOP nomination in a crowded May 20 primary. Allen has yet to release his second quarter fundraising numbers — which cover the period between April 1 and June 30. They are due to the Federal Election Commission by July 15.
As of April 30, ahead of the competitive primary, Allen had just $191,000 in the bank.
Georgia’s 12th District is rated as Leans Democratic by Rothenberg Political Report/Roll Call.
