Westchester County Executive George Latimer had raised 35 percent more than Congressman Jamaal Bowman as of June 5 and has 250 percent more money left to spend in the remaining days of of their June 25 Democratic primary, according to the latest Federal Election Commission filings.

Since the race for the 16th Congressional District began, Latimer had raised $5.77 million compared to $4.31 million by Bowman, as of June 5. Latimer had $2.54 million cash on hand, while Bowman was left with $1.04 million. 

Among people living in the 10580 ZIP code, Latimer far exceeded Bowman on the fundraising front in the 2023-2024 cycle by bringing in 84 contributions totaling $146,060 compared to 28 contributions totaling $35,429.

Those figures do not include the millions of dollars that have been spent by outside groups in support of the candidates.  

According to a report in Politico, one such group, the United Democracy Project, a political action committee affiliated with the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, has spent $9.3 million supporting Latimer in this race, the most it has invested in any congressional primary.  The New York Times estimates that Bowman has benefited from $2 million in spending by progressive political action committees, including Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Courage to Change.

Early voting for the must-watch House race kicked off on Saturday, June 15, with turnout expected to be high.

In the waning days of the campaign, Latimer had also racked up a notable endorsement, with former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton announcing her support for the Westchester County executive.

“(George Latimer) will protect abortion rights, stand up to the NRA, and fight for President Biden’s agenda—just like he’s always done,” Clinton posted on X, formerly Twitter, on June 12. “Make a plan to vote by June 25th!”

Bowman, meanwhile, is joining progressive powerbrokers Sen. Bernie Sanders and AOC — who both backed the incumbent earlier in the campaign — for a voter turnout rally in the Bronx on Saturday, June 22.

As primary day approaches, the Bowman-Latimer race is drawing more and more national attention because, as The New York Times wrote on June 15 it has: “exploded into a proxy war for the Democratic Party’s future, tearing open old wounds over race, class and ideology in the heart of a presidential election year.”
