JUNEAU, Alaska — Republican U.S. Rep. Don Young holds a huge cash advantage over his rivals as he seeks a 22nd term in the House.
Young brought in about $130,000 between April and June, with about $100,000 in contributions and the rest in the form of things like rebates and dividends. He ended the quarter with nearly $590,000 available.
The only other Republican candidate to file a report with the Federal Election Commission, John R. Cox, reported no contributions though he reported more cash on hand than at the end of the prior quarter, $4,300.
The most prominent Democratic candidate, Forrest Dunbar, brought in $36,500, all in individual contributions. He had about $31,000 available but still owed $6,000 to the state Democratic party.
Frequent candidate Frank Vondersaar, a Democrat, reported $100 on hand.
