Money for Mejias

Dave Mejias recieved some good news last week when the DCCC added his race against Rep. Peter King in the 3rd Congressional district to their “red to blue” program.

I’d heard a rumor since then that the Mejias campaign had actually receieved less money from the DCCC than they were expecting. But campaign manager Mike Premo said that wasn’t the case, and that they were receiving “tens of thousands of dollars” plus logistical support to help the candidate in the final week before the election.

“Since we have been targeted there is a heavy influx of support to help us pay those final bills,” he said.

In addition, Mejias received the endorsement today of Newsday, which King recently suggested to a crowd of security profesionals in Manhattan isn’t a real newspaper.
