Incoming Congressman Anthony Brindisi was recognized for the makeup of his campaign financing.
The Center for Responsive Politics says that Brindisi will be entering congress with one of the highest shares of small or individual donations funding their campaign.
Brindisi made the top 10 list of incoming Congressional members who raised the largest amount of their total campaign contributions from individual donations under 200 dollars.
Brindisi says he thinks he was able to demonstrate that it is possible to win without big money donors.
He was ranked as the member of Congress with the 7th highest portion of total funds raised from small donors and was the only member on the list who had a close race.
