PENN YAN—Democratic Congressional Nominee Tracy Mitrano (NY-23) announced today that her campaign raised $950,000 during the third quarter of 2018. This brings her total raised for the cycle to over $1.1 million.
“I am so proud of the grassroots movement that has powered us to this impressive milestone,” Mitrano said. “I am also humbled by the outpouring of support from all across the eleven counties of this district. In addition to the 1,300 volunteers making calls and knocking on doors each day, this fundraising success points to a groundswell of enthusiasm on behalf of our campaign.
“Our message for real economic opportunity for the 23rd District is resonating from Chautauqua to Tioga—and voters are ready for a representative who will work for them, not for large corporate backers.”
Mitrano announced that roughly three quarters of the donations received by her campaign in Q3 came from within the district. As of the last public filing, under 22 percent of incumbent opponent Tom Reed’s donations came from within New York’s 23rd District.
“Tom Reed takes nearly 60 percent of his money from corporate backers and special interests. The fact that we were able to raise nearly $1 million last quarter while rejecting corporate PAC money is a testament to this district’s readiness for change—and to the widespread energy that will translate to victory on Election Day.”
