Lujan Jr raises $112k in fourth quarter, Kokesh cash strapped

This weekend, U.S. Rep. Ben Ray Lujan reported that he raised $112,000 in the fourth quarter -- smashing the fundraising effort of at least one of the two Republican primary candidates vying for the 3rd Congressional District in the 2010 election.

Tea Party activist and war protestor Adam Kokesh reported he collected just over $38k in the final quarter -- October 1 to December 31.

Farmington Republican Tom Mullins' report was not available online Sunday morning.

Lujan has $285,000 cash on hand and has raised $520,000 in the current election cycle -- with more than half, $289,000, from Political Action Committees. Lujan reported that he's returned over $11,000 in contributions. He spent spent $39,000 in the fourth quarter.

Lujan reported raising $79,000 in the third quarter of 2009.

Kokesh is cash strapped

Kokesh's Federal Elections Commission report shows he has raised a total of $142,000, but in the year end report filed this weekend he reports spending nearly $65,000 in the final quarter and has -- according to the federal report -- only $4,800 cash on hand.

He's planning an on-line fundraising campaign on Monday to raise money in conjunction with his birthday.
