Andrew Cuomo spent $2.5M in past two weeks while fending off Zephyr Teachout: filings

August 29, 2014

Gov. Cuomo is burning through campaign cash.
His reelection campaign spent nearly $2.5 million in just the past two weeks as the governor tried to fend off Democratic primary challenger Zephyr Teachout, according to a financial statement made public Friday.
“I think it tells you that he is taking this challenge very seriously,” said one Capitol insider. “For someone who says he is not concerned about the candidacy of Zephyr Teachout, the numbers show something very different.”
Cuomo campaign officials declined to comment.
Cuomo’s campaign spending includes more than $1.2 million on television ads since mid-August.
The governor also transferred $849,153 from his campaign account to the state Democratic Party, which used almost all of that amount — $818,231 — to support the governor’s reelection effort.
Party officials also spent $35,422 to support Cuomo’s running mate, Kathy Hochul, records indicate.
Television ads accounted for $571,497 of the money spent by the party.
The governor also spent heavily on lawyers, including $23,441 to attorney Martin Connor for the unsuccessful effort to kick Teachout off the primary ballot. The money was in addition to $8,074 Cuomo paid to Connor earlier this summer.
Cuomo also paid off a $10,000 legal bill he owed to attorney Elkan Abramowitz, who is representing the governor’s office in U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara’s probe of the Moreland Commission controversy.
Additionally, Cuomo reported spending $23,598 on El Al tickets for his goodwill mission to Israel earlier this month and another $1,224.91 on his Jerusalem hotel.
Despite the heavy spending, Cuomo still has more than $30.5 million left in his account with less than two weeks remaining before the Sept. 9 primary and nine weeks before the general election.
The governor raised $602,765 during the filing period and continues to take in cash. He took in $200,250 in just a 24-hour period that ended Friday morning, according to notices posted with the Board of Elections.
Teachout’s campaign filing was not available online Friday, but her campaign said that during the same period, she raised a modest $213,551.
Hochul, meanwhile, raised $368,114 during the past two weeks but spent only $27,312, according to her campaign’s statement.

Conservative Governors Leading the Way for Lower Unemployment Rates, Job Growth
Aug. 29, 2014
Policies from conservative governors are creating more private-sector jobs while lowering unemployment rates (compared to Democrat-led ones), according to recent reports by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.

As background information, 29 states are currently being led by Republican governors, while 21 are being led by Democrats.

After doing some number crunching on each state’s unemployment rate report from last month, a few details really stood out. For starters, 11 out of the 15 states currently with the lowest unemployment rate are being led by Republican governors.

Republican-led South Dakota, Nebraska, Utah and North Dakota all can boast that they are in the top four for lowest unemployment rates in the country. These states under Republican leadership for much of the recent past have been able to brag about great job numbers for many years.
That’s why a state like Wisconsin, under Republican Gov. Scott Walker’s leadership since 2010, is an even bigger story.

Wisconsin is currently just 25th in the nation for the lowest unemployment rate, but that doesn’t paint the full picture of how conservative policies are helping a state like his.

Since Gov. Walker took office, the unemployment rate in Wisconsin has dropped from 7.8 percent (behind Democrat Gov. Jim Doyle’s policies) to 5.8 percent.

There are many similar stories around the country, such as Florida, where the unemployment rate has dropped from 10.9 percent to 6.2 percent since Republican Gov. Rick Scott took over.

Perhaps the most interesting job statistic comes from a recent report by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. Earlier this month, they released private sector job numbers of each state for the first seven months of 2014.
The statistics were slightly misleading at first look because of each state’s differing population, so I began to number crunch once again. I took each state’s private sector job numbers in the first seven months of 2014 and divided it by each state’s overall population to get a more accurate, telling number of how many private-sector jobs are being created in each state.

Similar to the unemployment rate statistics, Republican-led states really stood out for being high private-sector job creators.

In fact, the four highest private-sector job creating states per 100 people are states currently led by Republican governors. North Dakota (1.8 percent), Texas (0.98 percent), Utah (0.97 percent), and Nevada (0.91 percent) are the only states that can boast numbers higher than 0.90 percent, something no Democratic governor can boast about their own state.

Despite only carrying 21 states with governors, Democrats have six out of the lowest 10 private-sector job creating states in the country, collectively creating less than 1 private sector job per 1,000 people.

Illinois, led by Democratic Gov. Pat Quinn, was joined by Alaska (led by Republican Sean Parnell) as one of only two states of which lost private-sector jobs over the first seven months of this year. In total, Illinois lost 5,900 jobs in the past seven months, which was the worst in the nation.

If these two statistics (broken down) and our overall national job crisis led by Barack Obama isn’t enough to sway citizens on Election Day who are looking for jobs (as well as job-creators), nothing will. This nation has seen what liberal policies are doing to job prospects and our overall national economy and it isn’t appealing.

McConnell’s campaign manager resigns over 2012 scandal
Jesse Benton, a former strategist for presidential hopeful Ron Paul and his son Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul, issued a written statement announcing his departure Friday night.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Sen. Mitch McConnell, already facing what could be the toughest election in his career, lost his campaign manager Friday night.

The manager, Jesse Benton, issued a statement just after 6 p.m., abruptly announcing his departure and citing reports about his “role in past campaigns.” Benton was referring to his job as a senior official in former Rep. Ron Paul’s 2012 presidential campaign, which paid an Iowa state senator to switch his support from Rep. Michele Bachmann to Paul right before the state’s caucus.

The state senator, Kent Sorenson, who resigned last year, pleaded guilty in Iowa Wednesday to obstruction-of-justice charges stemming from the bribery scandal. He acknowledged accepting $73,000 from Paul’s campaign to drop his support for Bachmann.
Benton has not been implicated in the case, but his position in Paul’s campaign has revived questions about what he knew about the bribe, and the case put McConnell, the Senate minority leader, on the defensive.

“I cannot, and will not, allow any possibility that my circumstances will affect the voters’ ability to hear his message and assess his record,” Benton said of McConnell.

“This decision breaks my heart, but I know it is the right thing for Mitch, for Kentucky and for the country,” Benton added.

The resignation, effective Saturday, comes barely two months before Kentucky voters choose between McConnell, a five-term incumbent and the top-ranking Senate Republican, and Democratic challenger Alison Lundergan Grimes.

Polls show McConnell and Grimes to be neck and neck in a race that could play a role in determining if Democrats retain control of the Senate.

In the Iowa case, prosecutors refused to say who paid Sorenson.

Benton, a tea-party insider, said he has been the target of “inaccurate press accounts and unsubstantiated media rumors” about his role in past campaigns that are “politically motivated, unfair and, most importantly, untrue.”

Separately Friday, McConnell’s campaign said the senator “obviously has nothing to do with the Iowa presidential caucus or this investigation, so it would be inappropriate for his campaign to comment on this situation.”

Charly Norton, a spokeswoman for the Grimes campaign, said: “Sen. McConnell owes the people of Kentucky a full account of what he knew and when he knew it.”

Benton was mentioned in documents gathered during an Iowa state ethics probe of Sorenson, a complaint to the Federal Election Commission and emails purported to be from the Ron Paul campaign obtained by the nonpartisan Center for Responsive Politics, which monitors federal campaign-finance issues, The Courier-Journal of Louisville reported.

Benton’s hiring to oversee McConnell’s campaign was seen as a way to appeal to more conservative elements of the Kentucky GOP.

McConnell eventually faced a tea-party-inspired opponent in the Republican primary, which he easily won.

Early in the campaign, Benton gained unwanted attention with the airing of a recording in which he was heard saying he was “holding my nose” to work for McConnell’s re-election campaign.

Benton managed Rand Paul’s successful U.S. Senate campaign in Kentucky in 2010. Rand Paul is Ron Paul’s son.
