Deficit spending

On August 8, Republican State Assembly candidate Molly McGartland, who’s vying to unseat incumbent Democratic State Rep. Christine Sinicki, filed a pre-primary campaign finance report (shown below) in which her campaign ended with a negative cash balance of $1,526.43. According to the report, McGartland’s campaign received $425 in contributions and then spent $2,407.09, resulting in the campaign having a negative balance of $1,526.43. As a result of that negative balance, McGartland was forced to loan her campaign $2,000 on August 4 in order to get the campaign’s cash balance back to a positive number.
