The refunds totaled $982,192.
“Schneiderman 2018 is honoring its commitments and paying bills in accordance with applicable law and precedent. Once the committee has honored all its commitments, the remaining funds will be donated to worthy and appropriate causes, consistent with the law,” said Kimberly Spell, speaking for the Schneiderman campaign.
