Pat Ryan raises $210K towards NY-19 congressional run

Democrat Pat Ryan has raised $210,000 in the three weeks since he threw his hat in the ring for the 19th Congressional District, according to his campaign.

Ryan, 35, is one of eight Democrats who are challenging freshman Republican Rep. John Faso in the district next year. The general election isn’t until Nov. 6, 2018.

Ryan ended the quarter with more than $200,000 in his account, his campaign said.

Those running for Congress have to file three-month quarterly reports of their campaign finances with the Federal Election Commission. The July quarterly report period for 2017 ended on June 30 and has to be filed with the FEC by July 15. Ryan announced his run on June 7.

“Inspired by the tremendous energy and passion of this community, we made a bold decision to enter the race with only three weeks left in the quarter, and it paid off.” Ryan said in a release. “I’ve been blown away by the response to my campaign across the district. I’m running to bring a spirit of selfless service back to Washington and am energized for the race ahead.”

Last quarter, Faso raised a little more than $276,000 while Democrat Antonio Delgado raised about $300,000 and Brian Flynn raised about $180,000. So far, no candidates in the 19th district have posted their full finances with the FEC.

The 19th district includes all or part of 11 counties, including all of Ulster and Sullivan counties.

Ryan, a Kingston native and U.S. Military Academy graduate, served two combat tours in Iraq as an Army intelligence officer then started two technology firms. He currently lives in New York City but said he’s searching with his wife for a home in Ulster County.
