Is Rep. John Murtha being out-raised by his challenger?

It seems to be true, but with a few caveats:

A Republican challenger to Rep. John Murtha of Pennsylvania has raised more money than the incumbent in recent months, but also has more debt and has raised less overall.

William Russell, a former Army lieutenant colonel who relocated to Murtha's district to run against him, raised nearly $670,000 in the fundraising quarter that ended June 30.

That's interesting. If you feel like helping Russell rid the House of Representatives of one of it's corrupt members, donate to his campaign here.

Update: It looks like Michelle Malkin was a little bit ahead of me. Her new article is about this House race and it's worth a read. Although this is a little bit groanworthy (emphasis mine):

“The incredible story about Bill’s campaign is that the $15 and $25 contributions are coming in from all over Pennsylvania and every corner of the country,” Luksik noted on the Russell Brigade website (www.russellbrigade.com). “This is K-Street versus Main Street. These are patriotic families expressing support for soldiers, sailors and Marines, and people saying they’ve had enough of the old ‘pay-to-play’ culture in the Capitol. That’s what’s fueling this campaign.”

Hmmm...who else do we know that uses that kind of rhetoric?
