Grimm’s Campaign In Debt

Congressman Michael Grimm

Domenic Recchia is rolling in cash while Michael Grimm is drowning in debt. So says Politicker which reports that Michael Grimm’s campaign to defend his congressional seat is deep in the red.

Earlier this week we reported that Councilman Domenic Recchia had claimed to raise a record $412,000 since he announced his candidacy to unseat Grimm late this past February. While the cash situation is looking positive for Recchia, the same can’t be said for Grimm.

According to a Federal Election Commission report, Grimm is almost $500,000 in debt with only $300,000 in cash on hand. Grimm will have a lot of work to do to keep pace with Recchia’s impressive fundraising and also fight off the Democratic Super PACs that are targeting Grimm, who they consider vulernable.
