Past and present members of Congress have also come to both Corwin and Hochul's aid. Reps. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) and Nan Hayworth (R-N.Y.) gave to Corwin, as did the district's former congressman and National Republican Congressional Committee chairman, Bill Paxon, who has been advising Corwin. House Majority Leader Eric Cantor's leadership PAC chipped in $5,000, and not included in the pre-special report was the $2,000 House Speaker John Boehner gave after he appeared at a fundraiser on her behalf earlier this week. The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee transferred $5,000 to Hochul on April 29, and DCCC Chairman Steve Israel also gave her $2,000 from his personal campaign account. New York Democratic Reps. Eliot Engel, Jerry Nadler and Paul Tonko also gave to her campaign, as did Reps. Sander Levin (D-Mich.) and Jared Polis (D-Colo.) Independent candidate Jack Davis is entirely self-funding his campaign and isn't soliciting donations. Through the May 2 deadline, he had put more than $1.6 million of his own funds in the race, but since then he's reported putting in an additional $500,000, bringing his personal loans to $2.1 million.
