Hakeem Jeffries has built a significant campaign war chest in his quest for Congress — mainly from individual donations.

Assemblymember and congressional hopeful Jeffries has raised $1,235,862, a campaign spokesperson confirmed. The camp filed its quarterly report, which details funds raised up to June 30, with the Federal Elections Commission (FEC) on Sunday, July 15.

The finance breakdown on the FEC website shows $1,125,562 came from individual contributions. The remaining $110,300 came from non-party or other committees.

The three-term assemblymember is facing off against Republican Alan Bellone for the freshly-drawn 8th Congressional District. Jeffries defeated Councilmember Charles Barron in a landslide primary on June 26 after getting key endorsements on the federal, state and local level.

Between April 1 and June 6 alone, Brooklyn native Jeffries raised just more than $250,000, his campaign announced in early June. At that time Jeffries for Congress had raised $769,544 from 2,447 donors.
