Alp Basaran raised a mere $1,343 in the last three months for his challenge to Rep. Bill Pascrell, Jr. (D-Paterson) in the 9th district Democratic primary.
He has $12,752 remaining of the $78,581 he’s raised since becoming a congressional candidate last year. Included in that is a $50,000 loan Basaran made to his own campaign.
Also challenging Pascrell in the primary is Zina Spezakis, a green energy investor.
Pascrell has not yet released his first quarter fundraising numbers.
