In the new 13th District, which includes portions of Mahoning, Trumbull, Portage, Summit and Stark counties, Democrat U.S. Rep. Timothy J. Ryan raised nearly 20 times more than his opponent, Republican Marisha Agana, en route to re-election Nov. 6.
Ryan raised $997,884 and spent $984,420 compared to Agana, who received $51,987 and spent $47,081.
As of Nov. 26, the end of the campaign reporting period, Ryan has $158,181 left over and Agana, $3,279. Campaign finance reports for local and state candidates are due Friday to boards of elections and the Ohio Secretary of State.
Ryan, of Niles, is debt free. But Agana, of Howland, has $10,430 in debt. Of that, $10,000 is a loan she made to the campaign in March.
In the race in the 6th District, which includes the southern portion of Mahoning County, Republican congressman Bill Johnson raised $2.08 million and former congressman Charlie Wilson, a Democrat, received $1.4 million.
The reports show that Wilson spent $1.5 million and Johnson, $1.9 million.
Wilson, who lost to Johnson in 2010 after two terms in Congress, has $9,145 remaining in his campaign account and Johnson, $75,996.
Wilson shows a debt of $582,458 and the campaign owes the candidate $574,558 in loans he made back to 2006. Johnson lists a $15,000 debt from a loan he made to the campaign in January.
U.S. Rep.-elect Dave Joyce is proving himself to be a formidable fundraiser, as the Republican raised nearly $1.2 million to win a seven-person race in the 14th Congressional District.
Joyce, picked in August by GOP leaders in the district to replace retiring congressman Steve LaTourette, raised about 80 percent - $952,654 - in the weeks leading up to the Nov. 6 election, the latest federal campaign finance reports show.
As of Nov. 26, Joyce, the prosecuting attorney in Geauga County, had $303,804 in his account.
Joyce spent $645,622 in the race that also included a Democrat, Green and Libertarian party candidates and three write-in candidates.
Joyce's campaign owes him $25,000 he loaned it in August.
The other candidates did not file reports with the Federal Elections Commission. A candidate is required to file if he / she raises or spends $5,000 over the period.
The newly drawn district includes communities in the two northern tiers of townships in Trumbull County.
