Cuomo Amasses Large Reelection Fund, Plans to Push Campaign Finance Reform
Monday, July 16, 2012
Governor Andrew Cuomo has raised just under 6 million dollars in the last six months in preparation for his 2014 re-election bid.
Campaign finance filings show Cuomo has just over $19 million for a reelection run.
The filings come as the Democratic Governor begins to push for reforming the state's campaign-finance system.
New York law allows maximum donations of more than $60,000 for statewide candidates and unlimited donations to so-called "housekeeping" committees for political conferences.
On Tuesday, Cuomo indicated he would attempt to rally public support in favor of overhauling the finance laws.
A total of 751 donors gave money to the governor's campaign since January, with about half of his total donations coming from 86 donors.
