Booker raises nearly $2.9M, Lonegan $1M for New Jersey Senate race

Booker, known for his prolific fundraising ability due to his Hollywood and Silicon Valley connections, has raised a total $11.5 million for his bid since January.

According to The Newark Star-Ledger, Booker's Republican opponent, Steve Lonegan, raised $1 million during the same period and now has $241,000 cash on hand.

That small sum will make it difficult for Lonegan to take advantage of any momentum he may be gaining in the final weeks of the campaign. Two consecutive polls released this week showed the race to be tighter than expected, but Booker still maintains a double-digit lead and is the heavy favorite to win on Oct. 16.
