Dems: Sandanato's "shoe-string" campaign being financed by state, county GOP

(Continued)

Niagara Gazette — While Sandonato has enjoyed the support of the state and county committees, in the end the success or failure of his campaign will come down to his efforts to communicate with voters, he said.

“There’s nothing else to it,” Sandonato said. “It’s going door-to-door and talking to neighbors.”

Sandonato said the county Democrats are trying to “make an issue” where there isn’t one, as political entities passing money back and forth and committees backing candidates for their party is simply part of politics.

The county Democratic committee and minor party committees have paid for mailers and advertisements in support of their endorsed candidates and mailers attacking their opponents.

“I’d imagine that county Democrats are doing it the exact same way,” Sandonato said.

Do you think cigarette sales to non-Native American customers should be taxed on reservations?

Yes. Items should be taxed like they are everywhere else.
No, the indian reservations are sovereign land and they are selling them on their land.
Not up to me. Native Americans decide the rules on their land.
Don't care. Smoking isn't good for you.
