Rent's Too Damn High Party gubernatorial candidate Jimmy McMillan claims he raised no money and spent no money in his bid this year.....The sheer novelty of his debate performance gave him the media juice to garner over 40,000 votes.
Other minor party candidates spent only small amounts....Green candidate Howie Hawkins spent $32K in a successful bid for ballot status. Libertarian Warren Redlich spent $20K and fell short of 50K votes. Kristin Davis spent $78K on her race.
Money matters...Andrew Cuomo by far spent the most and got the intended result.
