NY Democrat Has Extremely Embarrassing Fundraising Haul
The news keeps getting worse for Vincent Gentile as the Brooklyn Democrat vies for a chance to represent a Staten Island-based New York City congressional seat. Fundraising numbers just came out and show Gentile raised a paltry $195,000… more than $400,000 less than his opponent.
Vinnie doesn’t seem too upset about this horrific fundraising haul, though. According to Gentile’s spokesman:
“We are running the campaign we want to run.”
There seems to be a disconnect, however, as NY1 reported last night that Gentile had hoped to raise $500,000 in the race:
“Now earlier this month, both the Donovan campaign and the Gentile campaign told us they hoped to raise about a half a million dollars for the race. Now clearly Donovan reached that goal; Gentile did not.”
