Democrat Hochul Raises $350K For NY-26 Special Election

"While I don't have an ability to pull a check for $3 million or $5 million out of my pocket the way both my opponents have, I think that again it shows a contrast that there are people that support me for the right reasons, and I feel very confident about that," said Hochul. The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee is still assessing the race and deciding whether they will commit resources, but Hochul said their process isn't affecting her decision-making. "Clearly our race is full steam ahead independent of any thoughts in Washington. I think the ability to raise $350,000, to have the support of the people up here, that's what counts most to me," she said. "I certainly cannot be accused of being anyone's handpicked candidate at this point. Certainly if people want to help me, they're welcome, but that has not held us back one bit. We're moving forward very rapidly."
