Republican candidate Bruce Lilley, who aims to unseat incumbent Democrat Vicki Barnett in the 37th House District race, picked up $10,000 in contributions this week from two prominent Republican political action committees (PACs).
In two late contribution reports added Oct. 25 and 26, after Lilley's pre-general election statement was filed, Lilley's campaign reported receiving $5,000 each from the Livonia-based Common Sense Leadership Fund and House Speaker Jase Bolger's Restore Michigan Fund, based out of Marshall.
The contributions boost Lilley's bottom line; his campaign had just over $2,400 left as of the Oct. 25 pre-general statement. Lilley reported raising $10,790 in other donations since post-primary financial statements were released in September.
Barnett's pre-general statement shows she picked up more than $10,000 from PACs, including the Registrars PAC, Michigan Association of CPA PAC, Auto Dealers of Michigan PAC, DTE Energy Company PAC, CRAM (County Road Association of Michigan) RUSH PAC, United Transportation Union PAC, Michigan Association of Theatre Owners PAC, Ford Motor Company Michigan PAC and Michigan Distributors and Vendors PAC, among others.
Barnett has raised $17,180, added to a $72,583 balance from the September statement. Her campaign has a $28,600 balance, after expenditures that included $9,600 in donations to the Michigan Democratic Party, $2,500 to the House Democratic Caucus, and $1,500 to the Michigan House Democratic Fund.
