Republicans spent big for Amedore

Dec 04, 2014 12:05 am
Matthew Hamilton reports inthe Albany Times-Union that state Republicans went all in on George Amedore's campaign, in hopes of winning a majority in the state Senate. Amedore (R-Rotterdam) lost to Cecilia Tkaczyk (D-Duanesburg) in 2012 by 18 votes, but Amedore won by a large margin this time. Amedore's campaign spent $535,136 between Oct. 24 and Dec. 1, with a $361,000 contribution from the Senate Republican committee, the most the committee gave to a candidate just before the election. Amedore's $535,136 in spending was almost $100,000 more then the next highest big spended, Buffalo-area Democrat Marc Panepinto. Tkaczyk's complete financials were not available from the state Board of Elections as of Dec. 2, but the Democratic Senate Campaign Committee gave Tkaczyk $42,000 from two late-October donations. Amedore's district includes Greene and Schoharie counties, and parts of Ulster and other counties. Read the full story in the Albany Times-Union.
