Primary Challenger To GOP Rep. Bentivolio Announces Significant Fundraising Haul


The Republican waging a primary challenge against Rep. Kerry Bentivolio (R-MI) reported a significant fundraising haul for the third quarter.

Michigan attorney David Trott said he raised $425,000 in his campaign against Bentivolio, Roll Call reported on Wednesday. The announcement comes a few weeks before the 3rd quarter fundraising deadline on Oct. 15.

The announcement is particularly notable given that Bentivolio has had lackluster fundraising numbers over the last few quarters. Bentivolio caught national attention in August for saying it would be a “dream come true” to impeach President Barack Obama.

Trott announced his campaign for Bentivolio’s seat in early September.¬†
