State Sen. Phil Boyle has replenished his Senate campaign fund with $55,747 left over from his losing GOP primary bid for Suffolk sheriff. Yet even with the transfers, Boyle’s Jan. 15 report shows he only has $35,002 in cash on hand for his fall re-election campaign.
When Boyle became the GOP sheriff candidate last summer, he transferred $66,000 to his sheriff campaign fund, leaving only $2,772 in the Senate account.
Boyle raised $214,121 in his unsuccessful race against primary challenger Larry Zacarese. Campaign finance reports showed Boyle made six transfers back to his Senate campaign totaling $55,747 — about $10,000 less than he originally transferred from the fund.
Among others in the Long Island Senate delegation, Majority Leader John Flanagan has the most, with $1,193,959 in his campaign account, raising $288,055 in the last six months.
Among other Republicans in the State Legislature, Sen. Kemp Hannon has $274,561 entering the campaign season; Sen. Kenneth LaValle has $218,002; Sen. Carl Marcellino has $74,359; and Sen. Elaine Phillips has $70,081 while Sen. Tom Croci’s most recent report shows he has just $2,028.
Among Democrats, State Sen. John Brooks has $126,385 for his coming campaign, and Sen. Todd Kaminsky has $464,019 on hand.
