Senate race that would take majority from Dems in Iowa has Dem leading in funds

Iowa Senate District 18 Democratic candidate Liz Mathis has outraised Republican opponent Cindy Golding, $63,406 to $44,808, and the Democrat enjoyed $292,426 of in-kind contributions compared to $69,418 for Golding.

Mathis and Golding are locked in a special election that will determine control of the Iowa Senate. Former State Sen. Swati Dandekar (D-Marion) recently left office to take a position on the Iowa Utilities Board, leaving Democrats with a slim 25-24 advantage in the Senate.

Mathis spent $22,564 and had $40,842 on hand at the end of the reporting period, while Golding spent $35,549 and had $9,258 on hand.

  • $2,500 from I.B.E.W. Educational Committee in Washington, D.C.
  • $2,000 from United Steelworkers of America District 11 PAC in Minneapolis, Minn.

All of the in-kind contributions to the Mathis campaign were from the Iowa Democratic Party, mostly for advertising as well as printing, postage and mailing. Most of Mathis’s expenditures were through a $20,000 contribution to the Senate Majority Fund.
