The Republican candidates for Assembly 77 were required to report their campaign fundraising last night. I’d guess none of them was in a giant hurry to do so, given the lackluster numbers. Coming in on top was conservative Brian Jones with 21k. Next was Councilman Bill Wells with 13k. Moderate Christine Rubin didn’t even have to electronically file, which means her campaign is hardly flush with cash. This race is wide open. Will someone with the capacity to raise some money please consider running. We don’t need another Jay LaSuer keeping the seat out there warm.
