LastWednesday, Democratic state Comptroller Tom DiNapoli and his Republican challenger, Onondaga County Comptroller Bob Antonacci, participated in a televised debate in Manhattan. DiNapoli has an overwhelming lead over Antonacci in the polls. Thus far, he has been unable to qualify for state matching funds under the public campaign financing pilot program created only for the Comptroller’s race. If he were to qualify for the program, the state would match some of the funds he raised at the rate of $6 for each eligible dollar raised.
