Skelos Raising For Ball


As others have noted today, it appears Sen. Greg Ball, R-Patterson, Putnam County, and Senate Majority Leader Dean Skelos have come a long way since Republicans fought vigorously to beat Ball in a Republican primary last September.

So much so that Skelos is holding two fundraisers for Ball — one Monday in Albany and another in Croton Falls on Feb. 8. Tickets range from $9,500 to $250, according to Ball’s website.

Republicans pumped big bucks into Ball’s primary opponent Somers Supervisor Mary Beth Murphy, but Ball cruised and went on to win the general election against Democrat Mike Kaplowitz in an open Senate district that runs from Dutchess to Westchester counties.
