Straniere is BROKE


That is how much money Bob from Manhattan has in his bank account as of his FEC filing. By comparison Mike McMahon has $482,984. Fundraising totals aside, cash on hand numbers may be the most critical factor right now. This cash in the bank is the money that they will use over the next three weeks to get their ground game going. This money buys literature. This money offsets costs for volunteers. This money pays canvassers (we know Bob doesn't have an excited volunteer base like Mike). Simply put Bob doesn't have enough money to pay his staff and office rent for the next week, let alone enough money to run a campaign for the next three weeks.

If you give money to Bob at this point realize it is just going to pay down his likely incurred debt and not towards any actual campaign efforts.
