Levy Aide: RGA Will be Helpful

Democrats are delighted about a POLITICO report based on unnamed sources that say the head of a major Republican organization isn’t backing up Steve Levy’s claim that he’s going to get a major cash infusion from the GOP.

POLITICO said the Republican Governor’s Association “threw cold water” on Levy’s claim that the RGA promised to dump major cash on his campaign, as much as $10 million, according to some reports. Also, the RGA has been “silent” on the New York gubernatorial primary, POLITICO wrote. (Levy is facing two challengers: Rick Lazio and Carl Paladino.)

When asked to respond to the POLITOCO story, and reference to the “silent” RGA, Levy spokesman Josh Hills emailed to say: “Steve had a productive meeting with representatives of the RGA who were very interested in his candidacy as he contemplated a run, and among the topics discussed at this meeting were ways that the organization may be able to help out the campaign financially.” Levy Aide: RGA Will be Helpful
