Fossella Says He's Got Enough Money

The day after Rudy Giuliani dropped out the presidential campaign, the city’s only Republican Congressman says he has plenty of money on hand for his own re-election campaign this November.

“We are fully on schedule with our fundraising plans as we head into the election year,” said Representative Vito Fossella in a public statement. “Our fundraising success is reflective of the widespread support we enjoy in Staten Island and Brooklyn.”

Fossella’s campaign–he represents Brooklyn and Staten Island–says he raised $304,453 in the latest fund-raising quarter, and has $250,501 on hand. Overall, he raised $700,697 and spent $462,866 this election cycle.

There are two Democrats looking to unseat Fossella. City Councilman Domenic Recchia has raised $220,770, spent $14,318 and has $206,451 on hand for this campaign cycle.

Attorney Steve Harrison, who lost to Fossella in 2006, raised $69,203 this period, spend $23,354.11, and has $83,116.05 on hand  [numbers updated].
