Gussen Faces Nearly $2 Million Garrett War Chest, Report Says
Democrat has raised less than $5,000, according to report.
Adam Gussen, Teaneck’s deputy mayor and Democratic congressional candidate, has raised less than $5,000 compared to Republican opponent Scott Garrett’s nearly $2 million in campaign funds, according to a report on LehighValleyLive.com.
Gussen, however, expressed confidence he would be able to raise money.
"We're going to work to shine the light on (Garrett's) voting record and the positions he's taken," he said, the site reported.
Experts quoted in the report noted it would be challenging for the Democrat to get his message out and gather media attention.
Garrett’s campaign money has come from groups including financial institutions, insurance companies, the New Jersey Right to Life Political Action Committee and Koch Industries, according to Federal Election Commission records.
