Zephyr Teachout reports receiving 55,047 contributions from 31,027 donors.  She reports that her average contribution was $29.50. She has raised a total of $1,624,602 in Q3 and has a total of $1,472,689 on hand for the homestretch.

Her total contributions are $3,264,456 since she started her campaign in January.

John Faso, her Republican opponent, reported raising $922,363 in the third quarter ending Sept. 30. He has $355,927 on hand as of Sept. 30.

These reports do not include funds given to or held by PACs.  Faso is known to have benefitted from $1,625,000 of PAC money that can be spent in support of a candidate but not by the candidate’s campaign. 

  The Federal Election Commission reports are available at www.fec.gov. Both candidates receive support from their party’s congressional committees.
