Her treasurer may have mistakenly typed in the wrong campaign name.

That is strange. It comes up under Lt Governor race when you do a search.

I went back and it says Lt Governor and it has recent expenditures and donations for this reporting period.I think ME and Barb are right on this one.

Sorry for the confusion! I had the wrong report up there at first. I'm not sure why. These are the correct numbers based on the correct report.

$500 from Dr. No (John Arthur Smith) and $300 from Tim Jennings. Need I say more???

Well, Colon got money from Tim Jennings. So do you want to stick with that statement, Proud Dem?

Posted by: JoeDem | Apr 13, 2010 12:04:46 PM

Yes JoeDem, and I'll say more. The Colon contribution came from Tom Jennings, the Senate pro tem's brother. Tom is a former County Chair. It's not likely that Tim Jennings would contribute to Brian Colon, who publicly lambasted him when Tim Jennings endorsed a Republican in a neighboring state senate race. I remember that Colon later said that it was difficult to make those comments because Tom Jennings was a county chair and a personal friend. However, he felt duty bound to call out the senator for his disloyalty to the party.
