WASHINGTON, D.C. — The first year-end campaign finance filings are starting to come in, and U.S. Rep. Juan Ciscomani, R-Ariz., reports a significant amount of cash on hand for his re-election campaign.

In his filing with the Federal Elections Commission, Ciscomani for Congress reports having $2.1 million cash on hand as of Dec. 31.

The committee reports receipts of $478,212.99 in the fourth quarter of 2023, with $190,796.36 in disbursements during the same time. The committee also reports $42,929.79 in debt owed through Dec. 31.

The filing by Kirsten Engel, Ciscomani’s challenger for the Arizona Dist. 6 Congressional seat, had not yet been released by the FEC at the time of publication. The deadline to file the year-end report is Jan. 31.

The Cook Political Report lists the race for CD-6 as a “toss-up,” and the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee has named the Arizona races in CD-1 and CD-6 as focal points in the committee’s “Red to Blue” program.

In 2022, Ciscomani defeated Engel by 5,232 votes.
