Farley raises $260K for 2020 congressional run (updated)

Republican House candidate Chele Chiavacci Farley announced Friday that she raised $260,000 in three months and had $230,000 on hand for her bid to challenge Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney next year.

Farley, a private-equity executive who raised her political profile by taking on Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand last year, declared her candidacy for New York’s 18th Congressional District in April, and announced just a week later that she already had gathered more than $200,000 in donations and pledged donations. Her campaign said on Friday that it had exceeded its $200,000 goal for the quarter, and finished with more money on hand than the $137,000 Maloney had at the end of the first quarter of the year.

“I am most encouraged by the fact that the campaign received more than 200 donations of $100 or less,” Farley said in a statement. “We are building a strong grassroots organization that will be critical to winning this race.”

Candidates are due to file their second-quarter fundraising reports on Monday. Maloney’s campaign hasn’t announced in advance its income or balance for the quarter.

(Update: Maloney’s campaign said on Friday that it had raised $356,480 in the third quarter and had $322,313 on hand after expenses.)

Maloney, a Cold Spring Democrat, has represented the 18th District since 2013 and is serving his fourth term in Congress. The district takes in all of Orange and Putnam counties and parts of Dutchess and Westchester.
