Jul 24, 2023 12:34 am

Steve Hughes reports in the Times Union that Albany County Executive Dan McCoy and Sheriff Craig Apple are up for reelection this fall, but have no primary or general election opponents. That has not stopped them from raising money. Together, McCoy and Apple have more than $1 million to spend on future campaigns. Apple has $646,025 in his last campaign finance filings with the state. McCoy, a Democrat, has $378,223. Apple says he is prepared for when he does have an opponent, saying, “A sheriff's race years ago was probably on the highest, most competitive end was like 80 to 100 grand.... Now in Albany County, if you have an opponent, you're going to drop $250 to $300 (thousand) in a New York minute." McCoy agreed saying, “I'm always prepared. I get ready for the worst-case scenario, and I don't take it for granted.... And I like to campaign. I like to get out there and put my message out to the people.” Read the full story in the Times Union.
