BATTLE CREEK, Mich. (AP) -- Democratic incumbent Mark Schauer of Battle Creek owns a dominating edge in fundraising in his rematch against Republican former Rep. Tim Walberg of Tipton.

Through Sept. 30, Schauer had raised $2.79 million with $1.31 million cash on hand. That compares with Walberg's fundraising total of $1.25 million and $451,000 cash on hand.

Schauer, a first-term congressman from Battle Creek, spent more money than Walberg had raised.

Walberg had given $4,000 of his own money to the campaign, and Schauer hadn't contributed any personal cash.

The fundraising figures were due Friday and were posted to the Federal Election Commission's website.

Walberg was in his first term when Schauer bounced him from Congress in 2008, and now Walberg is looking to return the favor. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
