O’Donnell raises $150K for NY18 congressional run

Orange County Legislator Jim O’Donnell has raised about $150,000 and lent $50,000 of his own money for his bid to unseat Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney, a three-term Democrat with more than $3 million in his campaign account.

O’Donnell, a Republican and retired police commander from Goshen, reported virtually no expenses in his first three months of campaigning, and thus had a little over $200,000 in his campaign account as of March 31.

Maloney, a Cold Spring resident who has represented the 18th Congressional District since 2013, reported raising 345,574 in the first quarter of 2018, leaving him with almost $3.2 million in his account after expenses.

Maloney’s campaign filed petitions last week to run on four ballot lines in November: Democratic, Independence, Working Families and Women’s Equality. O’Donnell petitioned for three lines: Republican, Conservative and Reform.
