Democratic congressional candidate Anthony Brindisi’s campaign on Friday announced it had raised more than $340,000 between April and June, opening up a large cash-on-hand advantage against Republican Rep. Claudia Tenney.

Tenney, a Republican freshman seeking a second term in the 22nd congressional district, raised $176,977 during the same time period.

“Rep. Tenney’s fancy fundraisers in Washington that cost $30,000 a ticket are no substitute for the grassroots fundraising powering our campaign in Upstate New York ,” said Ellen Foster, Brindisi’s campaign manager. “We pledged not to take a dime of corporate PAC money, and it’s clear that independence is what the voters of the 22nd district want.”

Brindisi, a member of the state Assembly, has an overall cash advantage, with nearly $1.2 million in the bank compared to $774,603 for Tenney.
