But the Republican from Queens, who narrowly won re-election in 2006, also spent $72,812.82.

That leaves him with $89,694.22 on hand.

Contributions that caught my eye came from the Nassau County Police Benevolent Association ($1,000), Staten Island Political Action ($300), and an in-kind contribution from the Visiting Nurses Service ($101.48 as “reimbursement [for] gloves for flu shot”)

Noteworthy expenditures include $319.70 for “campaign t-shirts,” $1,288.42 to “America’s Campaign Store” for “campaign bags,“ $940 for ads in the Queens Chronicle, and $629 to lease a campaign car (also, $35 to register it).
