A state elections panel today released a fourth round of payments to candidates applying for public campaign financing.
Among the recipients, Gov. Dannel Malloy’s reelection team.
A potential roadblock to Malloy receiving almost $7 million was eliminated when the State Elections Enforcement Commission dismissed a complaint that Malloy had begun campaigning before announcing his plan to run agian.
Meanwhile, the commission said it has not yet released any funds to Malloy’s chief competitor, Republican challenger Tom Foley.
The commision's only public comment on the subject was that the Foley team has not yet raised at least $250,000 in qualified contributions, a requirement for receiving the public funding.
