HARTFORD, Conn. (WFSB) – A super PAC funded by the Democratic Governor’s Association has begun television commercials attacking Bob Stefanowski.
Two more PACs could spend millions on ads attacking Governor Lamont.
We have more than three months before the November elections, but negative ads have already begun.
PAC funds will be spent on both campaigns. A super-PAC funded by the Democratic Governor’s Association has launched a TV campaign reminding voters of Stefanowski’s previous role as CEO at a payday loan company. A company whose high-interest loans are illegal in Connecticut.
Stefanowski’s role on payday loans was moot in his first run for governor. Stronger CT’s ad said, “He made millions running a payday loan company that charged working people up to 450% interest.”
Stefanowski’s campaign states, “We know Ned Lamont is sticking to the same old tired politics, and his friends at big-money super PACs will say and do whatever they please to keep him in office.”
Stefanowski also gets PAC funds, 1.6 million from CT Truth. Another PAC has promised a $1 million campaign against Lamont.
This month, the candidates submitted their quarterly financial reports. Since Jan. 1, Governor Lamont has spent nearly $7 million on his campaign. He invested the most money. Lamont has spent over 6 million to date.
Bob Stefanowski has over $11 million in total. He took out a $10 million loan and put it in the pot.
He has spent more than $4 million to date.
