Apr 28, 2016 12:08 am
Bill Mahoney in Politico New York reports that Zephyr Teachout leads in fundraising among not just the other four candidates in the June 28 19th Congressional District primary, but she also leads among all 174 Congressional candidates in the state. Teachout took in $530,732 in contributions from January through March, according to the Federal Elections Commission reports. That is well ahead of her Democratic opponent, Will Yandik, who raised $259,670. Republicans in the District did not raise more than either Democrat: John Faso raised $220,441, Andrew Heaney raised $217,990, Bob Bishop raised $21,580, and sitting Assemblymember Pete Lopez, who stuck his toe in and out of the race, raised $405. Teachout was boosted by Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, who sent out multiple fundraising emails asking for $2.70 donations split between him and Teachout. The 10,657 Teachout donors included actor Mark Ruffalo and five members of the Soros family. Former Assembly minority leader John Faso has raised $220,441 in recent months and has $619,101 in the bank, and businessman Andrew Heaney brought in $217,990 and has $576,989. Teachout’s primary opponent, Livingston councilman Will Yandik, has raised $259,670 and has $202,715. Republicans Faso and Heaney, in the race longer, have more cash on hand then either Democrat now.
