Dennis Ross makes top 10 'money candidates' for open congressional seat



Congressional Quarterly today ranks the top 10 money raisers for open congressional seats. No. 6 is Dennis Ross, who has raised $237,000 for his bid to succeed fellow Republican Adam Putnam, a candidate for Florida agriculture commissioner.

"Unlike most of the rest of the districts on this Top 10 list, Florida’s 12th is politically competitive. It had just a mild Republican lean in the 2008 election, backing John McCain over Barack Obama by just one percentage point. Ross’ likely opponent in the November 2010 election is Lori Edwards, the elections supervisor in Polk County."
