ALBANY – What does it say about a campaign that spent $12.50 at a pizza restaurant to feed volunteers?
Either the volunteers weren’t all that hungry, or there weren’t many of them.
So goes the money ways for Democrat Mike Amodeo, whose fundraising and expenditure report for his 60th Senate district campaign has now shown up on the web site of the state elections board.
The latest round of fundraising reports for his opponents, including incumbent Sen. Mark Grisanti, a Republican, all were posted on the state board’s web site last Friday.
A look this morning at Amodeo’s submission shows money woes. Besides the fact that the central Senate Democratic campaign committee appears to be writing off his campaign with no vows of financial support yet -- while Senate Republicans donated at least $200,000 the past several weeks to Grisanti’s effort -- the Hamburg lawyer raised only $11,900 in the past several weeks.
