Metzger raises a torrent of individual donations in first six months

Sen. Jen Metzger has raised $98,000 since taking office in January and collected the bulk of it with a deluge of 490 individual donations, most of them for modest amounts.

The Rosendale Democrat received around $84,000 in total contributions from individual supporters, while roughly $14,000 came from unions, other candidates and organizations like Planned Parenthood’s campaign arm. Metzger, who supports banning corporation contributions and introduced a bill to that effect this session, had no money from businesses in the report her campaign filed on Monday.

Metzger had about $103,000 on hand after expenses as of July 11. The former Rosendale councilwoman beat Orange County Clerk Annie Rabbitt in November to succeed Republican John Bonacic in the 42nd Senate District, which takes in all of Sullivan County and parts of Orange, Ulster and Delaware.
