Almost $1B in stimulus funds to NY-23

From NBC's Domenico Montanaro
The New York governor's office just released county-by-county data on stimulus spending. (Here, here, and here.) It breaks down where -- and on what -- money was spent.

A First Read analysis of the data shows that almost $1 billion was allocated to counties in -- either wholly or partially -- New York's 23rd congressional district.

The six counties that are completely in the district -- Clinton, Franklin, Saint Lawrence, Jefferson, Lewis, and Oswego -- received almost $326 million.

An additional $602 million was allocated to the five counties that are partially in the district -- Oneida, Madison, Hamilton, Essex, and Fulton.

There is no data available on the number of jobs created by county, a spokesman for the governor's office said.

Jobs have been a big issue in Upstate New York. It's something Hillary Clinton campaigned on when she ran for Senate, and what every gubernatorial candidate promises to change when they campaign Upstate. New York State has been particularly hard hit by manufacturing jobs losses. In the past decade, since 1999, New York has lost more than 293,000 manufacturing jobs.
