Democrat Sean Eldridges campaign raised a little over $520,000 in the first quarter of this year. Nearly half came from the candidate himself.
Eldridge, the husband of New Republic editor and Facebook co-founder Chris Hughes, pitched in $250,000, according to a campaign finance report filed with the Federal Election Commission on Tuesday.
That contribution, made in one lump payment on March 31, brings Eldridges self-financing total to $965,000.
Eldridge is running for a competitive House seat in New Yorks Hudson Valley, in a district he has called home for less than two years.

So who’s the beech???
So whos the beech???
Awww, aren’t they darling?
Se now, yer secure enough to recognize that and not lie about it.
Just call it straight, like it is....
I’m from NY19.
Eldridge has no idea how to appeal to the District. He’ll get his 40% who are guaranteed to vote Democrat always, but not much more.
He’ll lose. And his husband won’t be happy about how much of his money he’s wasted.
When New York voted for Gay Marriage, 3 of the 6 State Senators who changed their mind were from NY19, and none of them were re-elected:
- Steve Saland (R) faced primaries in his Duchess/Columbia district for both the Republican and Conservative party lines. Saland barely won the Republican line over challenger Neil DiCarlo, who won the Conservative line. Vote-splitting in the general allowed Terry Gipson (D) to sneak through and steal this seat.
- RINO Roy McDonald (R) was defeated in both the Republican and Conservative primaries by Kathy Marchione (my new AWESOME state senator!!) who went on to easily win the general in this Columbia/ Rensselaer district. Her opponent happened to be a gay rights activist and lesbian. It would have been very strange indeed to have seen McDonald trying to out-GBLT his lesbian opponent, but fortunately we were not presented with that farce. For its reward, the Establishment ended up with a much more conservative senator in Marchione than they had in McDonald.
- James Alesi (R) of Monroe County did not even bother seeking re-election. He also had a personal issue that was working against him, but even so, he had no chance.
Just curious, but it is even remotely possible that gay marriage would be reversed in New York state at some point?
Never say never, but I wouldn’t bet on it. It will probably happens some place else first.
