Congressional candidate running for George Santos’ seat thanks community for recent surge in fundraising

Since announcing his campaign to oust embattled Rep. George Santos toward the end of July, Congressional candidate Michael Sapraicone announced he has raised $596,000, including around $546,000 in cash. He hopes to further build upon this momentum in the month of October, with plans to hold fundraisers.

“I am extremely grateful for the overwhelming support being given to my campaign,” Sapraicone said. “I am being offered the type of encouragement that redoubles my commitment to serve the residents of New York’s 3rd Congressional district who want a Republican on Capitol Hill to represent them, to secure the seat with integrity and keep the majority in Congress.”
