Primary race for Congress largely self-funded

WBFO/AM 970 News

The race for the Republican nod in the 27th Congressional District election is heating up, and the challengers are ponying up their own money.

David Bellavia has loaned $45,000 to his campaign, while Chris Collins, with deeper pockets, has loaned his effort $250,000.

The primary election looms on June 26th, and Collins suggests that the real fund raising will begin after the winner of that vote is announced.

Saturday & Sunday 6 a.m. to 12 p.m.
