He and Republican Jamie Santora, a township councilman at large, are vying for the seat currently held by Rep. Nicholas Micozzie, who will be retiring after 36 years in the General Assembly.

Democratic nominee for the 163rd District seat in the State House Vince Rongione outraised Republican opponent Jamie Santora once again.

In this latest campaign finance filing period, the Democrat bested his opponent by 28 percent, with Rongione pulling in $29,594 and Santora $23,050. In last month’s report, Rongione’s margin was much smaller, though still worthwhile, at just under 10 percent.

Rongione currently has over $86,000 cash on hand, while Santora has $76,464. Both candidates are looking to replace retiring Rep. Nick Micozzie (R-163) in November.
