Delgado warchest tops $2M after big fundraising haul

Rep. Antonio Delgado reported Friday that has campaign had raked in $773,000 in the last three months of 2019, leaving him with $2.1 million on hand for a race in which no serious challenge has been mounted.

Delgado, a Democratic freshman from Rhinebeck whose sprawling district includes Ulster and Sullivan counties, was a prodigious fundraiser during his successful bid to unseat Republican Rep. John Faso in 2018, and has remained so since taking office a year ago. His haul in the fourth quarter of 2019 was his largest so far.

Republicans had hoped to win back New York’s 19th Congressional District this year, but only three potential opponents for Delgado have emerged and one already exited the race. Another contender, Ola Hawatmeh, reported $5,000 in her account as of Oct. 1 and held her first fundraiser in Poughkeepsie on Jan. 16. The third Republican, Mike Roth, has reported no fundraising.

Rep. Sean Maloney, the Cold Spring Democrat who represents the neighboring 18th District, reported raising $534,000 in the fourth quarter – his largest quarterly income in more than two years – and having $754,000 on hand for his bid for a fifth House term.

Chele Chiavacci Farley, the Republican challenging Maloney for the 18th District seat, had reported $240,000 in her coffers as of Oct. 1. No fourth-quarter report for her campaign was available on the Federal Election Commission website as of 5:30 p.m. on Friday, the filing deadline.
