Incumbent 6th District Congressman Bob Goodlatte, R-Roanoke County, outraised Democratic challenger Andy Schmookler in the 3rd quarter and holds a substantial advantage in cash on-hand headed toward Election Day on Nov. 6.
For the period between July 1 and Sept. 30, Goodlatte raised $232,575 and ended with $692,023 in cash on hand.
For that same period, Schmookler raised $62,227 and ended with $32,832 in cash on hand.
We try to always offer the disclaimer that outraising an opponent doesn’t automatically guarantee victory — but campaign cash does enable a candidate to get his message out.
And as always, we invite you to share your thoughts on the 6th District race in the comments section.
