Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s campaign raised about $5.8 million in the previous six months, bolstering his political war chest to a total of $19.3 million on hand.
It represents the sixth-largest six-month haul by a New York candidate in a non-election year, according to New York Public Interest Research Group research director Bill Mahoney. Two of the top six periods came during Cuomo’s first year in office.
The news was released by Cuomo’s campaign just after 4:30 p.m. today.
Cuomo’s impressive campaign haul comes as he begins to make a push for reforming the state’s campaign-finance system, which allows maximum donations of more than $60,000 for statewide candidates and unlimited donations to so-called “housekeeping” committees.
Here’s a look at Cuomo’s individual donors for this period, which encompasses mid-January through a cutoff date of midnight yesterday. Other reports — including corporate donations — can be found here.
