The Republicans aren't exactly lighting the world on fire with their fund raising prowess!

Poor Richard Abbate had exactly four donors.

Not surprising, although $380 does seem pretty silly. The Republican Party knows not to go for some of these spots. There's giving money to a longshot, and then there's just throwing your money away.

Genghis, could you do a post on fundraising in competitive State House and State Senate races?

I will be working on it.

Genghis I think the 30th district state rep is very interesting.

I heard that in the 104th, Rep. Gentile only raised $300, while Romano raised $10,000.00

One to watch.

Let me ask again: Does anybody know anything about State Sen. Cathy Cook? Any signs she's going to be anything other than a placeholder candidate for Comptroller?

You're right about Gentile. Whew! Lousy quarter, I guess.

As for Cook, I'll go out on a limb here and suggest that her chances of actually becoming comptroller are slim, but she is the endorsed candidate and will probably make it all the way. Otherwise no cushy state post for her when it's done!

GC..you are thinking that folks run like Cook and Farr with a promise if they lose that they will be Judges and state employees? How cynical you have become.

I'm curious about the underticket statewide races. Obviously voters aren't paying attention to them -- if they're paying attention to anything, it's to Senate, Gubernatorial, Congressional races, maybe their own state leg. What will the races look like?

Cathy Cook will be a Commisioner or Deputy Commisioner if Rell wins. Done deal.

Cathy Cook is extremelely well qualified for the job of Comptroller. Check out her website: www.CathyCook06.com if you want to know the issues and reasons why our current Comptroller is not fit for the job. Read the recent audit.
