Flush with cash, Rep. Scott Garrett is ready for Democrats to challenge him
As he heads into a new election year with Democrats again trying to draw a target on his back, Rep. Scott Garrett is better prepared financially for a fight than he has ever been.
After years of spending down his campaign account in each election, Garrett, a conservative Republican from Sussex County who represents a Bergen County-dominated district, has started to build a bankroll that could scare away challengers.
Garrett had nearly $2.7 million in his campaign account on Oct. 30, more than all but five other members of the House and just $100,000 less than House Speaker John Boehner.
