MANHATTAN - Today, the Quart for District Attorney campaign announced raising over $1.6 million dollars to make Dan Quart the next Manhattan district attorney. Nearly 80 percent of dollars raised came from Manhattanites, highlighting the strength of support from real voters that the campaign has built.

“From the most endorsements from elected leaders and Democratic Clubs to our fundraising and grassroots support, we are meeting the moment New Yorkers demand: a district attorney’s office that promotes public safety without sacrificing fairness for everyone,” said Quart. “And that almost 80 percent of money raised came from Manhattanites shows that our message is resonating with the voters and puts us in a strong position headed into the final month of the race.”

The campaign has been up on television for weeks, is communicating heavily with voters in person, over the phones, and by mail, and has $556,000 cash on hand headed into the final weeks of the race.
