Dems top GOP fundraising in crowded CD9

Democrats Andrei Cherny and Kyrsten Sinema were the only candidates on either side of the crowded 9th Congressional District primary field to raise $100,000 in the most-recent period, while none of the seven Republicans in the race hit the $50,000 mark.

According to pre-primary reports filed with the Federal Election Commission, which covers the period between July 1 and Aug. 8, Cherny raised $126,503 and Sinema raised $121,122. Sen. David Schapira, the third Democrat in the CD9 primary, fell far short of his opponents, pulling in just $33,420.

Schapira, the Senate minority leader, also trailed his two opponents in cash on hand, with just $14,062 left in his war chest at the end of the period, compared to $154,494 for Sinema and a whopping $289,087 for Cherny.

Cherny, the former Arizona Democratic Party chairman and a former state prosecutor, and Sinema, a former state senator, have spent heavily on mail pieces and television advertising, and both have super PACs spending money to aid their campaigns.

On the Republican side, retired U.S. Air Force pilot Wendy Rogers narrowly led the field with $44,676, compared to $42,461 for former Paradise Valley Mayor Vernon Parker, and $30,840 for former Chandler City Councilman Martin Sepulveda.

Businessman Travis Grantham, who leads the GOP fundraising field in CD9, largely due to $240,000 in self-funding, raised a paltry $5,133 in the pre-primary period. Sepulveda had the most cash on hand on the Republican side at the end of the period with $94,374, compared to $78,275 for Rogers, $55,994 for Parker and $34,687 for Grantham.

Bringing up the rear on the Republican side were Scottsdale City Councilwoman Lisa Borowsky and Leah Campos Schandlbauer, a former CIA intelligence officer. Borowsky raised $27,464 with just $2,651 on hand, while Schandlbauer raised $18,500 with $17,013 on hand.

Republican candidate Jeff Thompson did not file a report with the FEC, indicating that he likely has not raised or spent $5,000.
