Katko Challenger Has $85K In Cash On Hand

The congressional campaign of Democrat Eric Kingson announced on Thursday it had raised $101,301 in the first fundraising quarter as he seeks to win the nomination to take on Republican freshman John Katko.

It is not immediately clear how much of the money Kingson raised from individual donors.

But Kingson, a college professor who has studied Social Security, has nearly $85,000 in cash on hand for the central New York House.

“I am so grateful for the outpouring of support for my candidacy thus far. Our strong fundraising numbers will enable us to press our message about expanding Social Security, guaranteeing paid family leave and creating an economy in which people can work for a better life right here in Central New York,” said Kingson in a statement.

Democrat Colleen Deacon, a former aide to Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand in the central New York area, entered the raceearlier this month, and has already received a fundraisingboost from her old boss.
