Rye Town Supervisor Joe Carvin released information from his quarterly campaign filing report today revealing he has raised $75,000 cash and loaned his campaign $1,000,000 of his own money to face off against incumbent US Congresswoman Nita Lowey (D-17th District).
Carvin's campaign reveals he has $1,054,000 cash on hand and that he has spent $32,000 so far.
In keeping with his campaign launch remarks, Carvin said in his statement that his bid was about fiscal reform and not taking up long-term tenure in Congree- a nod to Lowey's 23 years in public office.
"The focus of this nation must stay fixed on reducing our annual operating deficits and our national debt or they will weigh as an anchor on the economic future of our nation," Carvin said. " I have no interest in becoming a politician; I am asking to be sent to Washington to fulfill a specific mission and then I will come home."
Congresswoman Nita Lowey's campaign filing report shows $1,091,634 for the same period with more than $935,000 from individual contributions and the remaining $117,000 from political PACs and other committees. Lowey's donations come from a variety of special interest groups ranging from corporate donors such as the Becthel Group, Heineken, Goldman Sachs, Pepsico, and Life Technologies Corporation.
