Democrat Bock keeps pace in money race

Recent campaign finance reports show 2nd Congressional District candidates Joe Bock and Jackie Walorski managed to gather about the same amount of money in the fourth quarter of 2013, but U.S. Rep. Walorski maintains a comfortable lead in total campaign cash on hand.

The reports, submitted to the Federal Election Commission Jan. 31, show Bock, a teaching professor at the Eck Institute for Global Health at the University of Notre Dame, with $173,420.86 in total contributions between Oct. 1 and Dec. 31, compared with $172,743.05 for Walorski.
