Freshman Rep. Nan Hayworth (R-N.Y.) will report raising over $330,000 in the first quarter of 2011, according to figures obtained by Hotline On Call.
Thorough the end of March, Hayworth has raised $330,406 and has $332,780 cash on hand. According to a Republican aide who tracks campaigns, it's one of the most impressive first quarter hauls for a freshmen.
"It reflects her strong support as she fights to lower taxes, cut spending and reduce the size of government," said the GOP aide. "The fact that she is so well-positioned is going to make any Democrat think twice about challenging her."
Last November, Hayworth defeated two-term Democrat John Hall by more than 11,000 votes. But with the Empire State losing two seats, she could see her district radically altered. President Obama won the Hudson Valley district in 2008 with 51 percent, making it a top target Democrats want to reclaim. President George W. Bush took the area in 2004 with 54 percent.
