Federal campaign reports filed this week show that each of the 11 incumbents has outspent his challenger, and it’s remotely close in only two races.

In the 7th District, Democratic challenger Uprenda Chivukula has raised $728,000 since the start of 2011 — about $400,000 less than incumbent Republican Leonard Lance.

In the 3rd District, incumbent Republican Jon Runyan has raised $1.8 million and Democrat Shelley Adler has brought in $935,000 for her campaign.

In the 10th District, the only one without an incumbent, Donald Payne Jr. is trying to win the seat formerly held by his late father. Payne has raised $505,000. Republican Brian Keleman has not brought in any contributions.
