Oz Griebel loans another $76K to governor campaign
Oz Griebel, the unaffiliated candidate for governor who is recent days began a radio-advertising effort, has loaned his campaign an additional $76,000, according to the latest quarterly reports Wednesday posted by the State Elections Enforcement Commission.
Griebel, the former director of the MetroHartford Alliance, wrote five checks totaling the $76,000, including $30,000 on July 31. Most recently, Griebel, who on Wednesday was shown to have 11 percent support among voters in the latest Quinnipiac University Poll, wrote a $15,000 check on September 28.
During the campaign, Griebel has loaned his effort $143,500 of the total $387,000 raised. It’s a fraction of what Democrat Ned Lamont and Republican Bob Stefanowski have invested. With less than a month before the election, Griebel has $39,000 left, the report indicates. Lamont and Stefanowski’s reports are also due Wednesday.
