Fedele Will Be Able to Run With Foley. He’s Close to Collecting the Threshold For Public Financing

Lt. Gov. Michael Fedele plans to announce tomorrow that he has collected the $250,000 in under-$100 campaign contributions that will make him eligible for the $1.25 million for the GOP primary August 10. Fedele should get much more than that, because Tom Foley, who won the Republican endorsement during last month’s convention, has collected much more than that, including at least two personal checks totaling $2 million.
