Democrats Boost Murphy’s Fundraising in NY 20 Stretch Run

New York’s Democratic special election candidate Scott Murphy is on a fundraising tear, disclosing $354,000 in contributions of $1,000 or above in the past 10 days. A large portion of that — $77,500 — was transferred from his joint fundraising committee with the New York Democratic party, while Democrats in Congress chipped in more than $43,000.

Murphy’s Republican opponent in New York’s 20th District race, longtime Assemblyman Jim Tedisco, reported $115,000 in large-donor contributions in the same time period. Past and present Republican members of Congress gave Tedisco $20,000 — less than half of what their Democratic counterparts gave Murphy since March 16.

In the closing weeks of the campaign, the two candidates are required to file reports of all donations of $1,000 or more within 48 hours of receipt.
