Was that a typo in today’s Boston Globe? It was reported in the Globe that Guy Glodis has $800,000 in his campaign war chest. I couldn’t believe it, so I checked the Office of Campaign and Political Finance and I found out the Globe was WRONG. I fact, Guy Glodis has $834,352.35! So I decided to check the other Auditor Democratic candidates war chests and it shows Suzanne Bump has $34,471.47 (of which $25,000 came from herself, as a loan to her campaign), and Mike Lake has $21,825.89
Republican Party endorsed candidate Mary Connaughton has $73,706.78.
The Republicans are going to raise the money for Mary Connaughton so I think it’s important to consider this when determining who to support for the Democatic nominee. It is going to take $$ and lots of it, to keep up with the RGA and Republican money machine who litter our television screens with filthy lies and negative attack ads. As a lifelong democrat and twenty-five year activist, I would hate to lose this seat to the Republicans and would urge you to consider which candidate has the best resources. If we lose, We will never get it back!
Think long and hard about who truly has the resources, geography, and organization to take on the RGA and National and State Republican money!
Like him or not Guy Glodis is our best chance to keep this seat Democrat. All of the Democratic candidates are equally impressive but in the final analysis, neither Lake nor Bump have the resources or man power to keep up.
