You'd think that while Democrats were emptying their coffers fighting in a crowded primary, the lone Republican in the 1st Congressional District race would be busy building up his campaign war chest for November. But according to John Koster's latest FEC filings, not so much.
Koster raised only $115,120 from April through June ($427,380 total), leaving him with $115,632 cash on hand at the end of the quarter. Not very scary.
No doubt Koster's counting on a shitload of Koch and Rove money to be spent on his behalf, but the fact that Democrats have collectively out raised him by a seven to one margin (five to one if you don't count DelBene's million dollar contribution to herself), doesn't say much for Koster's work ethic, let alone his support on the ground.
