Democrat Mike Derrick continues to raise decent amounts of money in his bid for the NY21 seat now held by Rep. Elise Stefanik. While the incumbent has raised far more and has three times as much on hand, Mr. Derrick has raised over $40K in small dollar donations in the last quarter, a bit more than his opponent and he has a not too shabby $300K on hand.....That would have been an unheard of amount in the good old days when John McHugh just threw a little money at TV to keep them happy and compliant.
It's only been in the past decade such spending has occurred up here. It all started with the Aubertine-Barclay State Senate race, and has continued through several races since.
Green Matt Funiciello has raised an astounding five thousand dollars making him the tool of special interests.
