When Rep. Jim Himes (CT-04) posts his 2nd quarter numbers with the Federal Elections Commission (FEC) next week, he'll reach a significant milestone nearly 16 months in advance of the 2010 election.
Over $ 1,000.000 raised!
Himes has raised around $520,000 this quarter, and his campaign has cash on hand of over $760,000.
This means the total amount he's has raised for his 2010 re-election campaign is nearly $1.1 Million!
The final FEC filing deadline for the 2nd quarter is July 15th, so by next week we'll have official confirmation on these very significant numbers. This bodes extremely well for Jim and his campaign for re-election next year.
UPDATE: More confirmation of the numbers here.
