Reed breaks $1 million raised in 2017
New York 23rd District Congressman, Tom Reed, has raked in close to a staggering $1.06 million at the end of the second quarter for Federal Elections Commission filing.
“The campaign continues builds off its record breaking first quarter and is continuing to break records for fundraising and grassroots engagement,” Campaign Manager, Nicholas Weinstein said in a statement earlier today.
The exact number of funds raised at this point is $1,072,652.79. 43.7 percent of those funds are from individual contributors, meaning either a business, organization or individual. The remaining $565,050 was contributed by other political action committees.
That number is incredibly close to the $1,081,565 that Reed raised in the entire election cycle for 2010. Reed raised a total of $3.12 million in the entire 2014 election cycle and $3.10 million in 2016. In the first quarter of 2017, Tom Reed for Congress raised more than $585,000 in support of the congressman’s campaign for a fifth term (if you count the half term he served to start his career on the national stage) in the House of Representatives.
In a release, Reed’s campaign made note of his democratic challengers who have been steadily announcing their candidacies since early May.
“Tom Reed for Congress is in its strongest position ever, while our opponents are divided and in disarray with seven Democrat candidates already publicly in the race and a long path towards a contested primary,” the statement from Weinstein read.By Vaughn Golden Jul 17, 2017
