Former Rep. Nan Hayworth, who has long been gearing up a rematch in November against Democratic Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney, collected a surprisingly modest $37,000 in the last three months of 2013, most of it coming in late December before the cutoff for the reporting period.
The financial report her campaign filed Friday with the Federal Election Commission indicates she also kicked in about $50,000 of her own money, spent around $32,000 and finished 2013 with just under $500,000 in her coffers, or less than half of what Maloney reportedly has.
Hayworth had started the fundraising competition strongly with around $320,000 in reported contributions in the second quarter of 2013.
According to a calendar of upcoming events sent recently to Orange County Republican Committee members, Hayworth plans to launch her 2014 campaign with two appearances in Orange County on Feb. 9: a brunch in Middletown that also will feature Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino, a likely gubernatorial candidate this year; and a 2 p.m. stop at Satin Fine Foods in Chester.
Maloney, who unseated Hayworth in 2012 in New York’s 18th Congressional District race, has reported raising about $382,00 in the fourth quarter on of 2013, finishing the year with $1.1 million in his campaign account.
