Democrat Piotrowski raises more than Labrador last three months

Democrat James Piotrowski raised more than Republican Rep. Raul Labrador for July, August and September.

The October quarterly reports, released by the Federal Election Commission, show that Piotrowski raised $121,923 for the quarter, compared with $101,945 for the three-term incumbent.

Piotrowski said Labrador’s $154,000 television advertising buy, his first since 2010, shows he’s catching up. He debated Labrador Monday on KTVB.

“This is going to be a close race,” Piotrowski said. “I think people are ready for a change.”
