  • Text size: + -

Democratic congressional candidate Aaron Woolf’s campaign will report having more than $400,000 in cash-on-hand, including a personal candidate loan of $200,000.

Woolf’s campaign said in a statement that it has raised $205,000 since he first formed his campaign committee in late February.

The campaign says the contributions come from 300 different donors, with 60 percent of them living in New York state, and with the majority giving less than $250.

Woolf, along with Macomb town Councilman Steve Burke have both filed petitions to run on the Demcoratic line in the 21st District following the surprise retirement announcement of Rep. Bill Owens.

Two Republicans are vying for the seat: Elise Stefanik and Matt Doheny. Also in the race are Green Party candidates Matt Funiciello and Donald Hassig, who are petitioning their way onto the ballot.
