Notable committees that were not online as of 9:30 AM on July 18
include the IDC PAC and Senators Savino,Seward, and Golden.
For both parties, primary challengers were not included in the net totals. Additionally, two Democraticcommittees were excluded. Senator Gianaris has an extant committee for a statewide race that could eventuallybe transferred to the DSCC, but this has yet to be tapped. Senator Carl
Kruger’s total was not included with those
of other former legislators, since it is deemed unlikely that any candidates would accept transfers from thiscommittee.
