39th District Campaigners Report More Than $200,000 in Contributions

Six Republicans and two Democrats are vying for a spot on the November ballot in the race for state representative in the 39th District. We took a look at how much money they've raised, and how they're spending it.

The Aug. 7 primary is fast approaching and in West Bloomfield, you can't drive far without seeing a campaign sign for one of the many candidates vying for a spot in the Michigan House of Representatives in the 39th District.

Running for the spot are four area Republicans and two Democrats who have been busy raising (and spending) money ahead of the primary as they fight to see who will represent their parties in the November general election.

On the Republican ticket next week will be: Albert Clawson, Brad Hantler, Nicholas Kennedy, Klint Kesto, Bubba Urdan, and Kristine Zrinyi. The Democrats offer Regina Strong and Pam Jackson.

In total, the six candidates have raised $201,222.79 in itemized campaign contributions, which are donated by individuals or political actions committees (PACs) via cash or check. Those figures are based on annual campaign statements as well as pre-election campaign statements, which must be filed to the Michigan Secretary of State by July 27.
