The money is already flowing into Utah's 4th Congressional District, where Republican U.S. Rep. Mia Love and Democratic challenger Doug Owens are slated for a rematch next year.

New campaign disclosures released Thursday show Love brought in more money, but also had to spend much more on fundraising. Consequently, Owens was able to sock away more cash for later use on TV ads and other high-priced campaign items.

Both candidates say they hit or surpassed their personal fundraising goals and said the support they've received is an indication of their political strength.

"I'm deeply grateful for the widespread support our campaign is receiving," Owens said in a statement. "We have a lot of work ahead, but we're off to a very strong start."

Owens, a lawyer who lost to Love in 2014 by a little more than 5 percentage points, raised $322,700 and banked $284,700. He received money from some labor unions and a who's who of major Democratic donors in Utah, from Bruce Bastian to the Cumming family. He also received $1,000 from the political action committee of former Rep. Jim Matheson, D-Utah, who used to hold this seat, and $250 from Matheson's mother Norma, Utah's former first lady.

Love's campaign strategist Dave Hansen, said Owens did well his first quarter, as expected.

"It is a lot of the stuff that is going to be easy to get, that he got last time," Hansen said.

Love, a freshman House member, raised $385,200, and through a transfer from another account and money she earned renting her fundraising list, she brought in a total of $441,800. Though she spent $291,800 in the three-month period that concluded at the end of September.

She raises money primarily through campaign mailers sent nationwide. It is a strategy keying off of her status as the first black Republican woman elected to Congress, and while it is effective, it is also costly.

"I'm incredibly grateful to those who answer the small tap on the shoulder to contribute or get involved," Love said in a statement.

She now has $757,900 in her account.

Love dominated Owens financially in 2014, having an additional $4 million at her disposal. Owens is trying to close that gap this time around and will have the help of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, which largely ignored his first campaign.

The 4th District includes parts of western Salt Lake and Utah counties and portions of central Utah.

In other filings Thursday, U.S, Rep. Chris Stewart, R-Utah, has a total of $241,000 in available funds after he raised $135,000 in the past three months. He represents Utah's 2nd District, which includes much of Davis County, S salt Lake City and western portions of the state, stretching down to St. George.

Third District U.S. Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, had a strong fundraising period, bringing in $318,700, in part due to fundraisers with Amazon and dietary supplement companies. He now has $583,500 in the bank.

Chaffetz represents portions of eastern Salt Lake County, Provo and much of the eastern part of the state, including Moab and all the way south to San Juan County.

First District Rep. Rob Bishop, R-Utah, raised the least of Utah's House members, bringing in $90,100. He has $234,300 in the bank. His district covers much of northern Utah and stretches over to the oil country in Uintah and Duchesne counties.

No challengers filed reports in Utah's 1st, 2nd or 3rd districts.
