Incumbent Speliotis outpaces Bennett in campaign financing

(Continued)

Speliotis, who raised much of his money during a fundraiser at the Hong Kong Cafe on Maple Street earlier this month, is confident that he has the resources to win.

“We met our financial goal; we’ll be able to do all the mailings we wanted to do,” he said.

Time is going to be the X factor in the race, however, and both men clearly believe that a robust ground game in going to be crucial.

“This is almost like a special election, it’s so short and abbreviated. It’s a way different feeling,” Speliotis said.

Speliotis, one of the state’s longest-serving elected officials, defeated Bennett by fewer than 500 votes in 2010.
