WASHINGTON -- Rep. Tim Bishop heads into another tough re-election campaign this year with more than half a million dollars in the bank after raising $278,011 in the last quarter of 2013, his Federal Election Commission filing Friday shows.

Bishop, a Southampton Democrat, reported his campaign fund had $565,456 in cash at the end of last year, after collecting $161,190 from individuals and $116,821 from political action committees.

Bishop's donors include both small donors and some A-list New Yorkers, such as actress Gwyneth Paltrow, who gave $1,500, and fashion designers Calvin Klein, Diane von Furstenberg and Vera Wang, who each chipped in $1,000.

Bishop also reported getting funds from many labor union and corporate PACs, including $1,000 from the PAC of Cablevision Systems Corp., which owns Newsday.

This year, Bishop is expected to ramp up his fundraising. In his 2012 contest, Bishop spent $3 million and his opponent, St. James businessman Randy Altschuler, spent $2.3 million. Analysts expect this year's race to be just as expensive.

Two Republicans competing in the GOP primary to face Bishop already have posted big dollar amounts.
