The battle to win the May 6 Republican primary for Ohio's 14th Congressional District between U.S. Rep. Dave Joyce
and state Rep. Matt Lynch
continues as each recently received national endorsements.
Lynch of Bainbridge Township received the endorsement April 15 from the Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund, which said in a news release that the overwhelming majority of its grassroots activists in Ohio expressed their enthusiastic support of Lynch's candidacy.
Meanwhile, Joyce of Russell Township received endorsement April 22 by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, which said also named his as the recipient of the Spirit of Enterprise Award from the U.S. Chamber. The award recognizes Joyce’s work to support American workers and businesses through policies that encourage private sector investment and growth.
The latest campaign committee reports filed with the Federal Elections Commission show that Lynch ended with $48,940 cash on hand for his report that showed contributions and expenditures made from Jan. 1 through March 31.
A report for Joyce for the same time period showed he had $1,217,687 cash on hand.
It should be an interesting final two weeks before the primary election.
