Cicilline raised more than $300K in 2Q; war chest tops $825K

Congressman David Cicilline isn’t hurting for donations.

Cicilline raised more than $300,000 in the three months ended June 30, his campaign told on Monday. The incumbent Democrat finished the second quarter with more than $825,000 on hand.

Brendan Doherty, the Republican who is ahead of Cicilline in public polls, raised more than $200,000 in the second quarter and finished the three-month period with $663,000 on hand, his campaign said last week.

Compared with March 31, the size of Cicilline’s war chest increased by roughly $124,000 and the size of Doherty’s rose by about $103,000. Both campaigns are spending more on as the election draws closer.

Anthony Gemma, Cicilline’s opponent in the Sept. 11 Democratic primary, has not released his latest fundraising numbers as of Monday morning.

  1. With no support from any of the traditional Democratic constituencies, and his ability to self-finance diminished with his pending divorce, Gemma should quietly exit the race.

  2. david, like the mayors before him, ran Providence into the ground. he misapproprtaied funds and then lied about the state of the city to get elected to congress. Even with his personal problems Gemma is a better, more honest candidate.

    Vote ALL imcumbents out

  3. If Gemma is not living up to being a good husband, what makes him a good congressman ?

    Take care of your own family, before my family.

    David is on a mission!!!!!

  4. David is on a mission–To continue to be a Congressman and get all the perks while telling lies to the voters! Gemma’s silence speaks louder than words! Doherty will win this race.
