Pro-SSM McDonald Outraised, Outspent by Challenger


Now that the New York Senators have received their pay-off for their vote to redefine marriage, most gay marriage millionaires have moved on to other priorities.

Flip-flopper Roy McDonald, meanwhile, is facing a tough challenger who is beginning to both out-raise and outspend him:

Saratoga County Clerk Kathy Marchione has outraised and outspent incumbent Sen. Roy McDonald over the last month, a campaign finance disclosure shows.

The two are facing off in a Republican primary for the state Senate district encompassing parts of Saratoga, Rensselaer, Washington and Columbia counties. Marchione spent $84,536 in the past three weeks, compared to $55,120.76 from McDonald. Marchione raked in $42,324 compared to McDonald’s $28,460. -- Capital Confidential
