Senate Republicans continue to dominate Dems on fundraising

Monday, July 18, 2011 - 04:18 PM

NYPIRG's Bill Mahoney continues to crunch the recent financial disclosure reports:

While disclosure reports for eight active committees controlled by senators have yet to appear online, the recent arrival of the DSCC’s housekeeping committee means that some general trends can be noted. Republican candidates and their conference committee ($6,619,296.70) raised more than three times as much as Democrats ($2,172,168.86).   Democrats, however, spent more ($2,818,717.30) than Republicans ($2,187,133.82).  Republicans have $10,568,859.83 in the bank; Democrats have $4,254,488.47, but their party committee’s debt load means that their actual balance is closer to $1,915,520.94.

The three Independent Democratic Conference members who have filed with the state board of elections reported raising $695,572.59--of which Mayor Michael Bloomberg provided $30,900.

We're still waiting on the filings of Senators Flanagan, Dilan, Sampson, Parker, Diaz, Carlucci, Seward, and Ball. Check out NYPIRG's breakdown below.

The Senate Democ"RATS" have been spending their campaign cash on "LAWYERS" and they will be spending a lot more in the future.

Plus they have to pay back the Queens Bank loan they took out in 2010 and what ever money they have left will be needed for all the primaries that will take place once the new lines are in place, so come the General election they will be "BROKE"
