Riley campaign reports $550,000 cash on hand


Public fundraising reports released by the Federal Elections Commission confirm Democrat Josh Riley leads the field in fundraising in New York’s 22nd Congressional District, according to a release.

“I’m so humbled by the outpouring of grassroots enthusiasm our campaign has received,” said Riley in a statement. “At a time when our Democracy is dominated by dark money and corporate PACs, our campaign is doing things differently. We’re not accepting any corporate PAC money, relying instead on thousands of individual supporters, most of whom have contributed $50 or less. In Congress, I will always work for working families, not the special interests.”

In the first quarter, Riley’s campaign reported over $550,000 cash-on-hand and over $425,000 available for the primary election.

The newly drawn 22nd Congressional District includes a portion of Madison County, including the city of Oneida as well as the communities of Stockbridge, Smithfield, Lincoln, Lenox, Sullivan, Fenner, Cazenovia, Nelson, DeRuyter, Nelson and Georgetown. The district also includes all of Onondaga and Tompkins counties, including the cities of Syracuse and Ithaca; parts of Cortland County, including the city of Cortland; parts of Cayuga County, including the city of Auburn; and parts of Seneca, Ontario and Schuyler counties.
