For Immediate Release
January 2018 Filing period shows Sharpe outraising GOP candidates more than 5-to-1.
NEW YORK, New York, January 18th, 2018 – The New York Gubernatorial Campaign of Larry Sharpe (L) outraised all Republican candidates combined by over five times, according to the New York State Board of Elections. The GOP candidate who filed with the Board of Elections barely surpassed $16,000 for the January 2018 filing period. The other declared GOP candidate did not report any contributions for this period. Meanwhile, Larry Sharpe’s campaign broke $100,000 in funds raised, with most of the money coming from small donors.
“Here’s more proof that we are the real challenger in this Gubernatorial race,” Sharpe commented. “Our campaign has raised over $100,000 and that is over five times what the sacrificial lambs have raised. We are the only viable choice. We don’t need to raise more than Cuomo; just enough to cross the state and get our message out. And we are on our way to doing exactly that.”
Larry Sharpe’s campaign will continue to gain momentum through grassroots support, unprecedented small-donor fundraising, and tours across the state to hear the plights of suffering New Yorkers. The GOP is failing to stand up for the people of New York. Larry Sharpe will fight to save the future for everyone in the Empire State.
