A breakdown of the campaign cash flowing to candidates from real estate players

Sep.September 01, 2014 07:00 AM

Gov. Andrew Cuomo has raked in $42.7 million from more than 5,000 donors this election cycle. That’s compared with the $2.6 million his GOP rival Rob Astorino, the Westchester County Executive, collected from roughly 2,200 donors. (They had $35 million and $2.4 million on hand, respectively, as of late July.) The figures, released by the nonprofit New York Public Interest Research Group, show Cuomo largely relied on big-ticket donors. In fact, less than 1 percent of his war chest came in contributions of less than $1,000, NYPIRG found. Real estate players have, not surprisingly, donated generously to Cuomo and their pet causes.
