Reed challenger files healthy campaign report

 

By Robert J. McCarthy

   Democrat Martha Robertson, the Tompkins County Legislature chairwoman expected to challenge Rep. Tom Reed this November, is gaining attention with a significant new total in her campaign account.

   Robertson’s campaign said Friday it will file a report showing she has raised more than $727,000 for the cycle and has more than $500,000 cash on hand. Her campaign said more than 3,500 people contributed, with nearly 60 percent of the funds coming from New York State.

   The Reed-Robertson race is predicted to rank as one of the nation's most watched this year. Reed is expected to file his totals later this month.
