Stefanik fundraising far outpaces rivals

Jul 19, 2023 12:41 pm

Alex Gault reports for the Adirondack Daily Enterprise that Rep. Elise Stefanik took in nearly $1.2 million in contributions in 2023's second fiscal quarter, far outpacing any rivals. But half of that, $612,658, was from transfers from her other campaign committees and the GOP Battleground fund. Jill A. Lochner is running against Stefanik in a Republican primary election for the 21st Congressional District, and only reported $2,702 in donations last quarter. Steven W. Holden Sr., a Democrat who ran against Congressperson Claudia Tenney in 2022 and recently declared his candidacy for the 21st Congressional District, failed to file any financial disclosures for this election cycle. AT&T, Amazon, Raytheon, the Dairy Farmers of America, a number of groups representing doctors and pharmacists, American Express, and Wells Fargo all donated to Stefanik's campaign. Holden, the Democrat who promises he will take on Stefanik, filed paperwork to run, but his listed campaign website connects to a woodworking blog rather than a campaign page. Stefanik's 21st Congressional District now includes Rensselaer County. Read more about this story in the Adirondack Daily Enterprise.
