Farley announces $200K in donations, pledges

Republican Chele Chiavacci Farley announced Monday that she has collected more than $200,000 in campaign donations and pledged donations since launching her 2020 campaign for New York’s 18th Congressional District seat last week.

Farley opened her account after the first-quarter reporting period and won’t report her campaign finances until July, after the second quarter ends. Her campaign touted her first week of fundraising by saying it had set a record pace for the 18th District.

Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney, the Cold Spring Democrat and fourth-term congressman Farley plans to challenge, reported raising $218,000 in the first quarter and having $137,000 on hand after expenses as of March 31. Maloney is a prodigious fundraiser, but he diverted much of his warchest to his race for attorney general last year and did only modest fundraising afterward to fend off a challenger in his congressional re-election race.

Farley, a private-equity executive from Manhattan, waged an uphill campaign to unseat U.S. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand last year and lost by 34 points. She has since rented a house in Tuxedo Park and registered as an Orange County voter, prior to announcing her congressional run.
