Schreibman Raises More $$ Than Gibson

Oh, yee of little faith. Looks like Julian's fundraising machine is doing a good job:
Julian Schreibman, a Kingston attorney running to unseat Rep. Chris Gibson, R-Kinderhook, has raised more money than the incumbent, according to figures the campaigns will formally disclose next week.

Schreibman’s campaign took in around $535,000, according to his chief fundraiser Jamie Patton. That’s almost double the amount of money Schreibman’s campaign reported in its bank account in mid July.
Of course, the fact that they still trail Gibson in the money department means that they have essentially no cash-on-hand, but it's nonetheless a sign that Schreibman has real legs in this race.

Gibson, of course, as the incumbent, has had two year in which to fundraise, so his people have to be sweating just a bit if Schreibman has eclipsed them:
Gibson will report raising around $410,000, leaving $775,000 in his war chest, according to his spokeswoman, Stephanie Valle. He’s been on air for several weeks. Fueled by political action committees, Gibson outraised Schreibman in the last several weeks of June, and reported $1.2 million in his account.
And if you can spare a few bucks for the Schreibman campaign, all you need to do is click on the Act Blue logo on the right. It's secure, and you can pay by credit card or through Paypal.

  1. Looks like it is OK for the rich to bankroll a campaign as long as it is a democrat. Seeing as how over 80% of Schreibman's donations are coming from out of the district. From rich NYC lawyers.
