A physician from Mount Kisco who is seeking the Republican nomination to challenge Democratic Rep. John Hall in the November election ended 2009 ahead of Hall in campaign cash.
Aided by a $250,000 personal loan to her campaign, physician Nan Hayworth reported $519,008 in cash as of Dec. 31, according to a report filed over the weekend at the Federal Election Commission.
Hall’s report showed his campaign with $451,585 in cash at the end of the year. He raised $647,595 last year, including $265,875 from political action committees.
Hall, former vocalist for the rock group Orleans who lives in the Dutchess County community of Dover, is seeking a third term representing the Hudson Valley’s 19th Congressional District covering parts of Westchester, Rockland, Dutchess and Orange counties.
Hayworth, an ophthalmologist who practiced in northern Westchester for more than 15 years, left her most recent job at a New York City-based health care communications in October to run full-time for Congress.
Hayworth’s campaign committee received $345,660 in contributions last year, including $11,000 from political action committees. Her $250,000 in personal loans were in addition to the contributions.
