Statement from Ed Cox on public campaign finance in the Comptroller’s race
Posted April 10th, 2014

ALBANY…NYGOP Chair Ed Cox released the following statement after Comptroller Tom DiNapoli stated that he will no opt-in to public campaign financing:

“After Comptroller DiNapoli did his job by pointing out that the Governor’s sham projected budget surplus is actually a $3.4 billion deficit, and that the Governor used $700 million in one-shot budget gimmicks to balance the budget this year, Andrew Cuomo responded by subjecting Comptroller DiNapoli to public campaign finance.

“Public campaign finance advocates promise heaven but deliver hell: look no further than New York City, where a political Campaign Finance Board cleared the Democratic primary field for Bill de Blasio by arbitrarily denying matching funds to John Liu and Bill Thompson.”
