Hanna campaign raises $350,000
BARNEVELD, N.Y. (WKTV) - Richard Hanna, the Republican challenger for the 24th Congressional District seat, announced Saturday that his campaign has raised more than $350,000 in eight weeks.
The overwhelming majority of individual donors, 91%, are residents of the 24th Congressional District.
“Even though we have a long way to go, I am humbled and grateful for the enormous support our campaign has received throughout the district,” Richard Hanna said.
Hanna announced his second run for the seat on January 20, just a day after Republican Scott Brown upset Democrat Martha Coakley in the Massachusetts senate race. Hanna also ran against incumbent Michael Arcuri on 2008, nearly beating him.
The complete filing is due to the Federal Election Commission by April 15. Specific figures for the campaign will be available after that day.
Sixty percent of all individual donations to Hanna for Congress were $100 or less.
“It’s becoming increasingly clear that people are ready to vote for someone who is not a career politician,” Richard Hanna said. “It’s gratifying to see there is excitement and support for someone who is connected to their concerns and brings real life experience.”
