Elise for Congress has announced the campaign opens the 2018 cycle with nearly $1.2 million cash on hand for the re-election of Elise Stefanik.

The campaign also announced raising almost $270,000 in the fourth quarter, for a total of more than $1 million in contributions for 2017, including strong support from labor.

"As 2018 begins, I am grateful for the strong outpouring of support and for the contributions from all across the 21st District, said Congresswoman Stefanik. "In the months ahead, I will continue to put our District first, working on a bipartisan basis to help grow our North Country small businesses, protect and strengthen our nation's military and family farms, and to ensure everyone in the 21st District has a strong voice in Washington."

Stefanik will face Republican Russ Finley, R-Lisbon, in a primary.

The winner will then face off against the winner of the crowed democratic primary, which includes Democrats Patrick Nelson of Stillwater, Donald Boyajian of Cambridge, Ronald Kim of Queensbury, Tanya Boone of Granville, Emily Martz of Saranac Lake, Katie Wilson of Keene and Tedra Cobb of St. Lawrence County.
