Paladino Spent $1M to Beat Lazio, Records Show

AP

Buffalo businessman Carl Paladino.

Election records show Republican candidate for governor Carl Paladino spent more than $1 million in the two weeks before his shocking primary win over GOP designee Rick Lazio.

Paladino, a millionaire Buffalo developer, loaned his campaign just over $1 million and collected another $180,000 in contributions, mostly from individuals in small amounts.

During the same period, Lazio raised $286,000 and spent $486,000. He has $302,000 left as he considers staying in the race on the Conservative line he won, which would split conservative voters.

Democratic nominee Andrew Cuomo had more than $23 million in his account.

Paladino spent more than $1 million on campaign ads before the Sept. 14 primary through his company. He spent $200,000 on a New Jersey-based consulting firm.
