The Senate Democratic Campaign Committee today released its 27-day post primary campaign finance filing today, showing $2.4 million in outstanding loans and liabilities.
With the need to pay that money back, it will likely be more difficult for the party to pay its legal bills in the two remaining too-close-to-call races on Long Island and in Westchester County. Republicans are fighting to retake the majority.
They score a victory today against Sen. Antonine Thompson, D-Buffalo, who conceded today to Democrat-turned-Republican Mark Grisanti. That would make the Senate tied at 31-31 and Republicans need at least one more seat to take the majority.
Senate Democratic Leader John Sampson on Monday shrugged off the amount of debt the committee is in, saying the committee has been in the red before and has been able to dig itself out.
