With no Democratic opponent and ahead of his rivals in funds, U.S. Rep. Jeff Miller, a Republican, appears in solid shape to win another term. Miller has spent most of the more than $370,000 that he has raised but his team has almost $56,000 left in the bank.
John Krause, a pastor and private investigator running without party affiliation, is offering a conservative challenge to Miller, but he is burning through his money. Krause collected more than $17,000 in donations and kicked in almost $8,800 of his own to the campaign but, as of June 30, he has less than $400 in the bank. Jim Bryan, the Democratic candidate from 2008, is running as a write-in candidate and Joe Cantrell is running without party affiliation.
