In the most recent Federal Election Commission filings, it appears that Democrat Mary Peltola has no campaign external debt and has over $100,000 in the bank for her campaign for the two-year congressional seat on Nov. 8. She started the reporting period with $124,000 on hand but ended with over $1.1 million
Republican Sarah Palin, however, is bogged with over $85,000 in external debt leaving her with $25,000 in available funds.
The Nick Begich for Congress campaign has over $552,00 cash on hand and no external debt.
The FEC report was filed on Thursday for the special general election for the replacement for Congressman Don Young, though Sept. 5. The results capture most of the fundraising that occurred after the results of the special election were announced on Aug. 31. It shows that Peltola received a huge infusion of cash after her win of the special general.
