Staffing Callaghan

Alan Hevesi’s campaignis an expensive one, with all the trappings you’d expect of statewide incumbent’s reelection effort.

Christopher Callaghan, by comparison, has been a bare-bones effort.

But now, the Republicans, probably sensing an opportunity in light of the chauffeur scandal, are rallying to bolster his stretch-run effort.

Senate Majority Leader Joe Bruno’s spokesperson, Lisa Black, is taking a two-week leave from her job starting today to work full-time on Christopher Callaghan’s campaign. Speaking late yesterday, Black said they plan to do some quick fund-raising and hopefully cut a television ad.
