Congressman Anthony Brindisi, D-22nd of Utica, raised more than $900,000 for his re-election this year during the fourth quarter of 2019, his campaign announced on Twitter today.
The campaign said he has $1.8 million on hand.
Brindisi for Congress reported net contributions of $455,750 in the third quarter that ended Sept. 30 in an amended report filed with the Federal Election Commission Dec. 19. Similar amounts of around a half-million dollars were reported in earlier quarters in 2019.
The latest amount was not yet reflected in the Federal Election Commission online database, which also did not have filings from the announced candidates seeking the Republican nomination for the district: Broome County District Attorney Stephen Cornwell, Endicott teacher George Philips, Broome County educator Franklin Sager, and former Congresswoman Claudia Tenney of New Hartford.
The Brindisi campaign said it received donations from more than 5,000 individual contributors, with the majority from within New York state, and that 87 percent of the individual contributions were less than $100.
It said the average online contribution was $59.3. It was a record for fourth-quarter off-year fund raising in the 22nd District, according to the campaign.
