Wilson-Foley raises $200,000 in 2nd quarter

Lisa Wilson-Foley, a Republican candidate for Connecticut’s 5th congressional district, raised about $200,000 in the 2nd quarter of 2011. Her campaign didn’t say how much cash she had in the bank.

“With our state and country reaching almost 10% unemployment, and with our government at a stalemate in this budget crisis, I am seeing voters coming out of the woodwork to support our mission of ending Congress’ addiction to spending,” Wilson-Foley said in a statement Tuesday.

Wilson-Foley is one of eight candidates vying to fill the seat now held by Rep. Chris Murphy, who is running for the U.S. Senate.

House Speaker Chris Donovan, a Democratic contender in the race, released his tally last week, the only other candidate to do so. Donovan’s campaign said he’d raised more than $230,000 in the 2nd quarter and had more than $220,000 cash on hand at the end of June.

The candidates will all have to file campaign reports at the end of this week with the Federal Election Commission.
