Delgado outraises, outspends Faso again

After a three-month stretch in which Antonio Delgado raked in $3.8 million in campaign donations, almost four times more than Rep. John Faso, the Democratic challenger again outraised – and outspent – the Republican he’s trying to unseat over a 17-day stretch of October with the Nov. 6 election looming.

Fundraising reports filed Thursday show Delgado raised $1.3 million and spent $2.2 million Oct. 1 to Oct. 18, leaving him with $766,559 in his coffers. Faso, by comparison, raised $329,261 and spent $1.1 million in that time and had $647,912 left.

The 19th Congressional District race is virtually dead even, according to the latest poll, and is one of the most expensive House campaigns in the country. Delgado, who has been campaigning since early last year and beat out six other Democrats in a primary in June, has spent more than $7 million, Faso more than $3 million. Outside groups had poured $11.7 million into their own TV ads and other activities for the 19th District race as of Friday, according to the Center for Responsive Politics.

In the relatively low-spending 18th Congressional District race,  Democratic Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney reporting raising $102,155 and spending $301,166 from Oct. 1 to Oct. 17, leaving him with $383,117 in his coffers. His Republican challenger, Jim O’Donnell, raised $24,018 and spent $65,867 during that time, and had $150,581 left in his account for the campaign’s final weeks.

No outside groups have spent any money on that race.
