NY Primary Candidates Boost Campaign Funds
NEW YORK, N.Y. (AP) — New campaign finance records show candidates in the Sept. 14 New York primary boosting their coffers with personal funds and transfers from other campaign accounts.
Republican gubernatorial candidate Carl Paladino reports that he loaned $300,000 to his campaign, received almost $83,000 in contributions, and had a balance of about $150,000 in the latest 32-day filing period. The Buffalo developer faces former congressman Rick Lazio in the GOP primary.
In the Democratic primary for attorney general, longtime Assemblyman Richard Brodsky reports transferring almost $967,000 from his Assembly campaign account, plus about $47,000 in contributions, with a balance of $1.5 million.
He faces prosecutor Kathleen Rice, ex-Insurance Superintendent Eric Dinallo, state Sen. Eric Schneiderman and attorney Sean Coffey.
