Although state and federal campaign finance statements for the final quarter of 2019 aren’t due until the end of January, some candidates have offered a sneak peek into their fundraising efforts. Rep. Mari Manoogian (D-Birmingham, Bloomfield Township, Bloomfield Hills and eastern part of West Bloomfield) informed Oakland Confidential that she raised about $40,000 in the fourth quarter of 2019, bringing in more than $90,000 for the election cycle. Her competitor, Birmingham Republican Dave Potts, declined to say how much he has raised in the fourth quarter – only that he “feels good” about his position, as he said his spending is low and that he believes Manoogian is lower in the polls. “I think she has some trouble,” Potts said, referring to what he said was “an aging population of the district.” Whether Manoogian has a problem remains to be seen, but fundraising clearly isn’t one.
