Acting Nassau District Attorney Madeline Singas, who is running this fall for a full elected term against two other candidates, raised $679,835 in political contributions over the last six months, her campaign said Wednesday.

Singas, a Democrat, also spent $265,489 over the most-recent filing period -- which covered Jan. 12 through July 11. That left her with $796,753 on hand.

Since launching her campaign in early December, Singas has raised $1.1 million - though $411,221 came in the first five weeks.

Wednesday is the deadline for candidates to file their newest campaign finance reports with the state Board of Elections. Singas' report disclosing particular donors was not yet online as of mid-afternoon.

Hempstead Town Supervisor Kate Murray, the Republican candidate for district attorney, also had not yet filed her report, and her campaign has not yet provided the figures.

Former Manhattan prosecutor Michael Scotto, a Democrat who is attempting to wage a primary against Singas, also has not yet provided his reports covering the January to July period.
