HARTFORD, Conn. (WFSB) – A super PAC funded by the Democratic Governors Association has started TV ads attacking Bob Stefanowski.
Two other PACs could spend millions on ads attacking Governor Lamont.
We still have more than three months before the November elections, but the negative announcements have already started.
PAC money is being spent on both campaigns. A super PAC funded by the Democratic Governors Association has begun a television campaign reminding voters of Stefanowski’s previous role as CEO of a payday loan company. A company whose high-interest loans are illegal in Connecticut.
Stefanowski’s role with payday loans was in question in his first run for governor. The Stronger CT commercial says, “He made millions running a payday loan company that charged workers up to 450% interest.”
Stefanowski’s campaign says, “We know Ned Lamont is stuck in the same old tired politics and his friends in the big-money super PACs will say and do whatever they want to keep him in office.”
Stefanowski is also receiving money from the PAC, 1.6 million CT Truth. Another PAC has promised a $1 million campaign against Lamont.
This month the candidates submitted their quarterly financial reports. As of January 1, Governor Lamont was close to $7 million for his campaign. He has put up most of that money. Lamont has spent more than 6 million so far.
Bob Stefanowski has a total of more than $11 million. He took out a $10 million dollar loan and put it in the pot.
He has spent more than $4 million so far.
