Brings Total Cash-On-Hand to $1.25 Million
NEW YORK - Army Veteran Max Rose, the Democratic Candidate for New York’s 11th Congressional District, has raised $340,000 since the pre-primary filing, bringing his total to more than $700,000 for the latest fundraising quarter. These contributions bring the total cash on hand for the campaign to more than $1,250,000. 

“This campaign has received an immense amount of support since day one and winning the primary has pushed us to a whole new level - and we did it all without a cent from Corporate PACS,”  said Max Rose, Democratic Congressional Candidate for NY-11 . “Staten Islanders and South Brooklynites are tired of having a spineless representative who doesn’t show up for us in D.C. or here at home. It’s time we had someone with the courage to work with both parties to defeat the drug epidemic, end our traffic nightmare, and ensure every American has access to affordable health care.”

Max Rose , a purple heart recipient, Staten Islander, and the   first post 9/11 combat veteran to run for office in NYC history,  has single-handedly turned NY-11 into one of the top battleground districts in the country. He has been profiled in   Politico Magazine  and  the New York Times , and has generated enthusiasm among Democrats nationally for   winning his primary  in a landslide. CNN has designated NY-11 as  Lean Republican  after initially declaring it safe in August. Max was one of the first 18 candidates named to the   DCCC’s Red to Blue list  for the 2018 cycle, and he leads his Republican opponent Dan Donovan in   both fundraising and cash on hand , a powerful indicator for success in November.

He deployed to Afghanistan where he was awarded a Purple Heart and Bronze Star.
