The republican challenger to Sen. Craig Johnson has received $462,000 in direct contributions from the New York Senate Republican Campaign Committee so far.
There is also the money spent by the SRCC on Donno's behalf which adds up to $196,527.
So total from the State Republicans IN ALBANY, Donno is the recipient of $658,527.
For that kind of cash from the republicans, you'd figure she would at least advertise that she is the republican candidate.
Albany money makes up more than 80% of Donno's campaign spending.
For a candidate that says she wants to go to Albany to "... work to be your voice in Albany" and "fight for the changes we need and deserve," she sure took alot of money from the establishment in Albany.
If Skelos is so nuts about winning that seat back, do you really think that Donno will vote any way other than the way Skelos wants her to vote?
You dance with the one that brung you and Skelos is the one that is bringing Donno.
With over half a million dollars from Albany so far, Donno is not a candidate for change in the state senate, she is the candidate of the status quo.
