Senator Gillibrand has $10.5M in re-election bid
ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - U.S. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand is reporting $10.5 million in her campaign account as she runs for re-election. That gives the Democrat a massive cash advantage over Republican challenger Wendy Long.
The Gillibrand campaign reported that it raised just over $2 million for the three-month period that ended June 30 in federal disclosure forms that were due Sunday. Long reported just over $96,000 in campaign cash at the end of the period.
Long, a New York City lawyer who has advocated for conservative judges, won a three-way Republican primary last month.
Gillibrand is running her second Senate campaign since she was appointed in 2009 to replace Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton.
