Delgado maintains lead in campaign funds in NY19 race

Antonio Delgado remains the leader in campaigns funds in the crowded race for New York’s 19th Congressional District, reporting a bigger account after the first quarter of 2018 than six rival Democrats and the Republican congressman they are vying to challenge.

Unlike in the two previous quarters, when two Democrats both outraised him, Rep. John Faso had the biggest haul among all 19th District candidates in the first three months of 2018. The freshman from Columbia County reported collecting $468,305 in that time and finished the quarter with $989,831 in his coffers.

Delgado, an attorney from Rhinebeck, took in $461,637 – not far behind Faso – and had $1,199,938 on hand as of March 31. He’s one of seven Democrats who filed petitions last week to compete in a June 26 primary for the 11-county 19th District, which includes Ulster and Sullivan counties.

Here are the amounts that the other six candidates raised in the first quarter and the balances in their accounts after expenses, according to the reports their campaigns filed with the Federal Election Commission by Sunday:

Pat Ryan

Raised, first quarter 2018: $423,129

On hand as of March 31: $959,068

Brian Flynn

Raised, first quarter 2018: $150,413
