Zac Roeill, one of three Democrats challenging House Energy & Commerce Chairman Frank Pallone, Jr. (D-Long Branch) from the left in next year’s 6th district primary, has raised $3,470 since entering the race on September 14.
Roeill, a supporter of Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign, reported spending $970 and has $2500 cash-on-hand, according to campaign finance reports he filed with the Federal Election Commission.
His campaign is 100% self-funded so far.
In September, Roeill was one of about 40 protesters who briefly occupied Pallone’s district office to criticize his failure to endorse the Green New Deal.
Roeill, 26, is third among the Pallone primary rivals in fundraising.
Russell Cirincione has raised $7,876, and John Hsu has taken in $5,396.
