Washington — Republican Mark Greenberg loaned his campaign another $592,500 during the summer, making his personal investment in his effort to unseat Rep. Elizabeth Esty, D-5th District, more than $1.1 million, according to the latest filings with the Federal Elections Commission.
The filings show that Greenberg has raised about $300,000 from individuals and political action committees for his campaign. He also gave his campaign about $70,000 — apart from his substantial loans.
Even as he lent his campaign more money, Greenberg used $280,000 in campaign cash to repay some of those loans, the filings show.
Meanwhile, Esty has raised more than $2.5 million to defend her seat, all from individuals and PACs.
Elected to the House of Representatives in 2012, Esty raised nearly $580,000 in the last quarter., which ended on Sept. 30. Her campaign ended the reporting period with $923,000 in cash-on-hand and $303,000 in financial obligations.
Greenberg’s campaign reported about $118,000 in cash-on-hand on Sept. 30 and about $122,000 in obligations accrued in the quarter, besides the personal loans to his campaign.
