Rising status in Congress comes with big dues for Utah’s Chris Stewart

< Previous Page

He gave the NRCC $28,000 in 2013, about 20 percent of everything he raised, and $96,000 in 2012, roughly 40 percent of his fundraising haul.

Bishop and Chaffetz have not faced serious competition since joining the House.

That’s not been the case for Rep. Jim Matheson, the state’s only Democratic member of Congress. The NRCC spent more than $1 million supporting Mia Love’s attempt to unseat him in 2012, an election he won by fewer than 800 votes. Matheson, who first won in 2000, has usually found himself in tight races with lots of Republican Party money flowing to his challengers, and therefore, hasn’t been expected to pay dues to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.
