Republican Scottie Mayfield lent his congressional bid $150,000 earlier this month, and he'll be able to increase that amount if necessary, according to personal financial disclosures filed with the government.
It was the first significant loan of this year's barnburner of a 3rd Congressional District race, and disclosures indicate the Athens, Tenn., dairy executive's campaign may have had to scale back without it.
Disregarding the $150,000 he lent his campaign July 6, records show Mayfield would have been operating a week later with about $19,000 in campaign cash.
That's about how much the Mayfield campaign spent on polling last quarter -- $22,000 -- and a paltry amount compared to the overall war chests for U.S. Rep. Chuck Fleischmann and another well-financed Republican candidate, Weston Wamp.
