42K For Nowicki

Chelsea city councilor Paul Nowicki is the first of the state senate candidates for Jarret Barrios's seat to file his pre-primary report, which is due today and reports activity through August 24. Nowicki reports raising $42,067, on top of $2368 already in the account.

Both Anthony Galluccio and Tim Flaherty recently told me they would be at or above $100,000, and Nowicki had said he would not be close to that level; ditto Jeff Ross.

However, Nowicki has been frugal, and had close to $34,000 still on hand as of 8/24. I suspect that Galluccio and Flaherty have been spending more heavily, so their advantage in the closing days might not be as huge as I might have expected. We'll see when their reports come later today.

Update: Galluccio reports raising $82,641, plus $13k from before, with expenditures of $61,440 -- leaving him $34,373 on hand as of 8/24, virtually the same as Nowicki. Of course, Galluccio has the advantages of all the mailings and other outreach his $61k has already paid for.

Update II: Flaherty reports raising $103,535, topping the field, with expenditures of $55,525, for remaining cash of just over $48k. Jeff Ross raised only about $8000, and added about $51,000 of his own money. He spent close to $55,000, and had less than $5000 on hand as of 8/24.
