Judy Feder Passes $1 Million Mark

Tim Craig

Judy Feder, a Democratic candidate in the 10th congressional district, will announce today she has raised more than $1 million for her campaign, her campaign staff said last night.

Feder, one of the best funded challengers in the country, faces Mike Turner in the June 10th Democratic primary. The winner will take on U.S. Rep Frank R. Wolf (R-Va.).

In 2006, Wolf easily defeated Feder, a professor at Georgetown University and former Clinton administration official.

But Feder, who raised $1.5 million for her campaign two years ago, vows to give Wolf a tough race this year if she gets the nomination.

"People want to finish what we started in 2006 and get our country back on track," said Feder, noting she passed the $1 million threshold four months earlier than she did in her race two years ago.


Feder will report she has about $700,000 in the bank. As of March 31, the last time he had to file a report with the Federal Election Commission, Wolf had $715,000 in the bank. Turner had $10,000.

Feder is a joke. She could raise 10 million dollars and actually lose votes every time she speaks. The Dems could do much better in this district if they could find another candidate who can raise money and is more appealing.
