The House's fourth-quarter fundraising reports were due Sunday, and there was plenty of movement in the last three months of 2009 . 

Here are the early winners and losers now that all the numbers have rolled in:


• Rep. Bobby Bright (D-Ala.) — Republicans believe Montgomery City Councilwoman Martha Roby is the real deal, but she still has yet to turn in a blockbuster quarter. Her modest $77,000 in the fourth probably won’t quiet talk of a primary. She also spent more than she raised for the quarter, which is never good in an off-year. Of course, Bright underwhelmed in 2008 with some of his early fundraising, too.

• Rep. Loretta Sanchez (D-Calif.) — Not only did she far outraise state Assemblyman Van Tran (R), $230,000 to $103,000, but Tran also saw primary opponent Quang Pham self-fund $250,000. Pham isn’t raising any significant money, but his presence will be at the least a nuisance for the highly touted GOP recruit, who has now turned in consecutive so-so quarters.

• Dennis Ross — Democrats have made a play in retiring Rep. Adam Putnam’s (R-Fla.) district, but their candidate, Lori Edwards, has turned in consecutive sub-$40,000 quarters. Ross (R) raised only $75,000 in the quarter, but he has banked more than four times as much as Edwards.

• Rep. Mark Schauer (D-Mich.) — Schauer outraised both of his potential GOP opponents combined, with $320,000. Meanwhile, former Rep. Tim Walberg and Brian Rooney, the brother of Rep. Tom Rooney (R-Fla.), appear headed for a battle.

• Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) — Not only did she raise an outstanding $592,000, but her Democratic opponents continue to run neck and neck in the fundraising battle. Maureen Reed is proving a thorn in the side of the establishment favorite, state Sen. Tarryl Clark. Clark outraised Reed $294,000 to $208,000, but they have almost identical cash-on-hand figures, at just under $390,000.

• Rep. Ike Skelton (D-Mo.) — Skelton pulled in nearly a half-million dollars for his campaign, while neither Republican challenger was able to crack even $80,000. The retirement talk will fade after this quarter, and Skelton is looking safer.

• Rep. Carol Shea-Porter (D-N.H.) — She saw Manchester Mayor Frank Guinta (R) raise just $61,000. That’s not top-tier money. Unheralded primary opponent Bob Bestani raised nearly as much — $50,000.

• Rep. Eric Massa (D-N.Y.) — Another highly touted GOP recruit, Corning Mayor Tom Reed, turned in a sub-$100,000 quarter here. Massa tripled Reed’s $87,000, with $261,000 added to his coffers.

• Rep. Allen Boyd (D-Fla.) — We’re still waiting for any of his opponents — Republican or Democrat — to raise big money. After three quarters, state Sen. Al Lawson (D) has just $35,000 in the bank for the primary.


• Rep. Travis Childers (D-Miss.) — This was one of the worst fundraising performances for an incumbent. He was outraised $201,000 to $110,000 by state Sen. Alan Nunnelee (R).

• Rep. Ed Perlmutter (D-Colo.) — Fundraising beguiled Aurora City Councilman Ryan Frazier (R) when he was a Senate candidate, but after switching races, Frazier outraised an incumbent. His $219,000-to-$215,000 advantage in the fourth quarter was slight, but it serves as notice that a district that began as an afterthought could see a race.

• Rep. Ron Klein (D-Fla.) — Klein has banked $2.4 million in just a few years in Congress, and he might need to use a good chunk of it this year. Iraq veteran Allen West (R) used viral video to raise $677,000 in the quarter, doubling the incumbent's haul and making himself into a much more viable candidate than he was in 2008.

• Former Rep. Ed Case (D-Hawaii) — After his primary challenge to Sen. Daniel Akaka (D-Hawaii) in 2006 went south, Case is seeking a return to Congress in the state’s other House district. He was outraised $253,000 to $53,000 in the fourth quarter, though, and state Senate President Colleen Hanabusa (D) is consolidating support for the upcoming special election.

• Rep. Charlie Dent (R-Pa.) — He was outraised for the second straight quarter, $380,000 to $287,000, by star Democratic recruit and Bethlehem Mayor John Callahan. Callahan now has more cash on hand than the incumbent, $630,000 to $613,000.

• Rep. Leonard Boswell (D-Iowa) — The oft-targeted incumbent might hope for a crowded GOP primary to help his chances in November, but former Iowa State University wrestling coach Jim Gibbons (R) has left the field in the dust. Gibbons far outraised any Republican opponent, as well as the incumbent, with $207,000 in the fourth quarter.

• Rep. Frank Kratovil (D-Md.) — The freshman was outraised for the first time in his rematch with state Sen. Andy Harris (R), $270,000 to $237,000.

• Rep. Harry Teague (D-N.M.) — Teague was outraised for the second straight quarter by former Rep. Steve Pearce (R-N.M.), $252,000 to $189,000.

• Robert Hurt — The GOP favorite to face Rep. Tom Perriello (D-Va.) turned in a very strong quarter, with $293,000 raised (just shy of the incumbent). But he also saw two self-funding primary opponents, Laurence Verga and Jim McKelvey, put together big money for the race. McKelvey’s half-million dollars in self-funding give him a $225,000 advantage over Hurt in cash on hand.

• Rep. Gerry Connolly (D-Va.) — Like Teague, Connolly was outraised by a repeat opponent, Keith Fimian, for the second straight quarter, $201,000 to $177,000.

• Rep. Paul Kanjorski (D-Pa.) — He knows his primary is real after Lackawanna County Commissioner Corey O’Brien (D) raised $180,000 for the quarter. And that’s before he gets a rematch with Hazleton Mayor Lou Barletta.

• Rep. Kurt Schrader (D-Ore.) — He was outraised $160,000 to $153,000 by state Rep. Scott Bruun (R).

• Rep. Dan Lungren (R-Calif.) -- For the third-straight quarter, physician Ami Bera (D) outraised Lungren. This time, it was $240,000 to $152,000. He's got a $200,000-plus advantage in cash on hand.

UPDATE: This post has corrected Teague's total for the quarter, which included money he raised for a joint committee that was then transferred to his account.
