Pearl River, NY… The Lawler for Congress campaign released the following statement after posting its strongest fundraising quarter of the cycle, bringing in over $1.53 million in the second quarter, bringing his total raised for the cycle to over $5.62 million. Coupled with nearly $4 million in cash-on-hand heading into the last four months of the campaign and coming on the heels of Mondaire Jones’ embarrassing loss of the Working Families Party line, Congressman Lawler is well-positioned to win reelection this November.

“Congressman Lawler is in pole position to win reelection in New York’s 17th District after posting his largest fundraising quarter yet,” said Lawler for Congress spokesman Chris Russell. “We will take nothing for granted, but with over $1.53 million raised and nearly $4 million in cash-on-hand after the critical deadline, we feel very confident about Mike’s strong position heading into the November election.”

“Congressman Lawler’s radical opponent, Mondaire Jones, is a self-described ‘socialist,’ called for defunding the police, embraced open borders, and supported dangerous cashless bail laws, putting together one of the partisan and extreme voting records in the entire House,” continued Russell. “On the other hand, Congressman Lawler has been rated the 4th-most bipartisan lawmaker in the House, has delivered tens of millions in federal dollars to Hudson Valley towns, and is piling up endorsements from law enforcement groups and labor unions who appreciate his common sense approach to governing and problem solving. The contrast could not be more clear.”
