I suspect she’s actually depressing more folks than anything else! And they’re all on her side of the aisle. That’s because she’s on pace to raise less than 1/3 of what her late husband needed to buy his U.S. House seat back in 2008.
Better yet for the good guys? Upon closer inspection of their FEC filings, Adler garnered only 15 individual contributions from Burlington County; her opponent, Republican Rep. Jon Runyan (NJ-3), received contributions from 107 individual Burlington residents this past quarter.
In fact, Adler apparently had more than two times as many individual contributions from the D.C. Metro area than she did from Burlington County.
To sum up the state of Adler’s fundraising: national liberal activists (like the abortion-loving ghouls over at Emily’s List) love Shelley Adler.
Her own would-be constituents? Not enough to invest in her!
