That's a dollar figure -- Anthony Petruccelli has $43,000 more on hand than his opponent, Daniel Rizzo, as they enter the final push to the May 29 primary that will decide who succeeds former pres. Traviglini in the state senate.
Campaign-finance reports filed today show that Rizzo has spent $50,773 to Petruccelli's $48,946, but Rizzo has just $11,605 left in his campaign account. Petruccelli is still well-stocked with $54,346.
Of course, money isn't everything. Can Rizzo's Revere organization and some interesting endorsements overcome Petruccelli's huge Eastie advantage?
