Money Race: Daly Steals a Page From Sullivan

Ray Hackett of the Norwich Bulletin has an update in his Sunday column on the 2nd district race, which has a couple of really interesting bits of information. For starters, GOP candidate Matthew Daly of Glastonbury has, according to his Q1 filing, lent himself about $10,000–about $8,000 of which he’s spent on disgraced former GOP chair Richard Foley’s “consulting services.”

Foley’s group burned through a considerable amount of Sean Sullivan’s money during the last cycle, before Sullivan (smartly) got rid of him.

Hackett also reports on Rep. Joe Courtney continuing his “Connecticut for Change” campaign committee, which raised money for Courtney and Rep. Chris Murphy last cycle.

So far, not shaping up to be a thriller in the 2nd.

  1. Since Daly lists his occupation as “Candidate,” I’m surprised he didn’t offer the loan to the campaign at a steep interest rate. So far as I know, it’s illegal in Connecticut to pay yourself a salary out of your campaign treasury, but I’ve heard that loans with interest ARE allowed.

    The campaign can also supply the candidate with almost Monte Hall sounding `prizes’!!

    It’s so exciting too!
    Rosa’s first campaign not only bought her a brand new car; but her husband got one too!

    Run for Congress and you could win valuable prizes!

    Genghis, you can’t do this. Please don’t put the FIC clown Matt Daly in the same league as Sean Sullivan.

    Sure, Commander Sullivan turned out to be a lousy candidate, but he had a stellar resume and was worthy of everyone’s respect.

    This Daly guy needs to be filed away with Joe Visconti and Boaz ItsHaky.

    Where is Boaz these days, btw?

    Still running.

    I believe that this remains the applicable ruling on this issue…

    Heath, I’m glad you, Healy, and the CT GOP are now prepared in the case Joe Courtney gets hit by the proverbial bus next summer. BUT couldn’t you have found a more respectable candidate to further the political debate?

    Sure, Matt Daly, Sam Caliguiri and the FIC walk hand-in-hand. Yet a little embarassing, no?

    PS– Tho I understand fully why you guys are having a tough time recruiting against Landslide Joe. I mean after hanging Sullivan out to dry, fundraising-wise, and hooking him up with Andrew Powaleny…

  7. Why do Republican candidates continue to hire Dick Foley? The guy ran Alan Schlesinger and Sean Sullivan into the ground. He sucks candidates’ warchests dry and doesn’t do any real work.

    I’ve heard rumors that Foley’s working for Orchulli…

    I believe that one of you is talking about state races, and the other is talking about federal races…

    Daly is running for federal office.

    I actually thought it was state law governing state and federal candidates — from a couple of perennial congressional candidates that sprung up in a different state after the state assembly changed the rules. I certainly could be mistaken though.

    Speaking of money numbers, I am guessing the Governor’s fundraising amount should be through the roof with her 75% approval, what do you think $150,000-$200,000, this reporting period with her exploratory committee?

    I wonder what Mallory and Susie B’s numbers will be compared to a sitting Governor?

    should be a million bucks easy.

    if not, she aint runnin again.

    She only has to raise $250k to qualify for CEP money.

    Looks like Malloy has raised $129,675 this quarter. Gov. Rell should blow that away.

  15. If we are artificially inflating expectations, let’s go all the way.

    Unless Sen. Dodd raised $ 1 billion, he’ll definitely need to drop out of the race.

    Works for me.

  17. If we are artificially inflating expectations, let’s go all the way.

    Unless Sen. Dodd raised $ 1 billion, he’ll definitely need to drop out of the race.

    I’m sure he can always finagle himself some TARP money in the next bailout.

  18. Odd – it didn’t block quote the entire thing…
