The Democratic candidate in New York's 22nd Congressional District has some catching up to do in the campaign finance department.

Dan Lamb, who is running to unseat U.S. Rep. Richard Hanna, R-Barneveld, raised $38,293.50 between April 1 and June 6. He now has $60,493.14 cash on hand. 

Hanna usually self-funds his campaigns, but he has collected his share of contributions. According to his most recent campaign finance filing, he has more than $353,000 in the bank. 

Lamb is the only Democrat in the race, but Hanna isn't alone on the GOP side. He is being challenged for the Republican nomination by Michael Kicinski. (There isn't campaign finance information available for Kicinski.)

The race has been interesting so far. Hanna did not receive the Conservative Party's endorsement — the first time he hasn't received the party's line. He did, however, receive the Independence Party's support.

Lamb also lost a minor party line when he failed to submit an acceptance of the Working Families Party's nomination to the state Board of Elections.
