Nicole Malliotakis, the New York State Assemblywoman and candidate for New York’s 11th Congressional District will report raising an impressive $300,000 in her first quarter filing with the Federal Election Commission, due later this month.
Her federal committee, Nicole for New York, will show receipts of $300,563.55, disbursements of $16,245.11, with $284,318.44 “cash-on-hand” for the period ending March 31, 2019. Making the numbers even more imposing is the fact that the committee wasn’t filed with the FEC until the end of January; which gave Malliotakis only two months to raise the funds.
New York State accounted for 93% of all donations with the vast majority coming from residents of New York City. Among the prominent New Yorkers contributing were John and Margo Catsimatidis, Peter Kalikow and Ronald Lauder.
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy’s Leadership PAC contributed the maximum $10,000 to the Assemblywoman’s campaign in a strong show of support.
Republican House Members who contributed through their PACs included: Elise Stefanik (NY-21), Lee Zeldin (NY-1), Cathy McMorris Rodgers (WA-5), Martha Roby (AL-1), Susan Brooks (IN-5) and Jackie Walorski (IN-2).
Nicole Malliotakis is in her 5th term representing portions of Staten Island and Brooklyn in the New York State Assembly. In 2017, she was the Republican candidate for Mayor of New York City and carried Staten Island with 70% of the vote and the 11th Congressional District with 67% of the vote.
