Binnie dumps in another $500,000; Ovide running on fumes

As we head into the final stretch, Now! Hampshire can now report on the disposition of each of the campaigns.

According to his last financial disclosure, Bill Binnie has dumped in another $500,000 of his own money into his flailing campaign. Sources close to his campaign report that Binnie has upped his final media buy to nearly $400,000, including $300,000 on Boston TV. Binnie is the only GOP candidate to run ads on Boston TV this cycle.

Ovide Lamontagne, on the other hand, is running on fumes. As of August 25th, Ovide had $109,000 cash on hand; $44,000, however, was for the general election only. He also had $36,000 in debt, and since that time has spent at least $38,000. That puts him in the red. According to campaign sources, Ovide is spending just $24,000 on TV the final week, a far cry from the amount it would take to make him a credible contender.
