Alaina Shearer is outraising incumbent Troy Balderson in 12th District

Democratic challenger Alaina Shearer is outraising her Republican opponent, U.S. Rep. Troy Balderson, in one of Ohio’s most flippable congressional seats.

Shearer, a resident of Liberty Township in southern Delaware County and the founder of a marketing firm, generated more than three times as much campaign cash as her Republican opponent between the start of April and the end of June. Balderson brought in just over $62,000 compared to Shearer’s haul of over $204,000.

Despite the large fund-raising lead in the last quarter, Shearer and many of her fellow Democrats challenging entrenched Republican incumbents face their biannual uphill climb to win congressional seats in a state that is gerrymandered in favor of its 12 GOP representatives.

Balderson is still in the lead in the overall money race with over $1.2 million in total receipts in the current two-year election cycle and over 750,000 still on hand. Shearer has raised over $456,000 and currently has about $200,000 on hand.

Central Ohio GOP Reps. Jim Jordan, R-Urbana, and Steve Stivers, R-Upper Arlington, were two incumbents who outraised their opponents significantly.

Jordan raised $3.4 million and spent $2.8 million while his opponent, Democrat Shannon Freshour, raised $238,544 and spent $143,997.

Stivers raised $186,270 and spent $287,099 with $1.72 million still in the bank. Democrat Joel Newby raised $6,282 and spent $4,208 with only $2,944 left.
