Less fundraising in the general election for 43rd Senate seat
Saratoga County Clerk Kathy Marchione isn't facing a fundraising behemoth in her general election bid for the 43rd Senate District, as she did in the Republican primary, according to information filed with the New York State Board of Elections.
Democratic hopeful Robin Andrews has almost $28,000 to spend heading into the last month of her campaign for state Senate. This total is about one-20th of what Sen. Roy McDonald, R-Saratoga, when he started his bid for the Republican nomination in 2012.
Her entire filing is available below.
Andrews hasn't seen her fundraising figures change much since her last filing in July to the pre-32 day general election filing. She raised a little more than $24,000 and spent a little more than $20,000. This was over a period where Marchione, McDonald and outside influences spent more than a $1 million for the Republican nomination.
None of the big donors who contributed to McDonald have yet to give to Andrews' campaign and it is not clear whether the same money will flow into her coffers. One notable contribution of $500 came from the defunct congressional campaign of Scott Murphy.
As of Marchione's latest campaign finance filing, which was about 10 days after the primary, she has about the same amount of money as Andrews.
