Changing His Campaign Finance Posture, Cuomo Now Seeks $25,000 Contributions [updated]

cuomo oneyear Changing His Campaign Finance Posture, Cuomo Now Seeks $25,000 Contributions [updated] 

 

It looks like Andrew Cuomo has had enough of a self-imposed $10,000 limit on individual political contributions, a cap he originally created "to show solidarity" with Eliot Spitzer’s similar self-imposed limit.

This invitation to Cuomo’s January 15 fund-raiser at the Mandarin Oriental hotel seeks contributions of up to $25,000.

When I reached Cuomo 2010 spokesperson Amy Dowell for comment, she said she would call me back. She has yet to do so.

UPDATE: A source close to Cuomo just told me, "Initially, we had said we’d adhere to 10 [thousand], but once the campaign finance agreement was announced, we agreed to 12.5 [thousand]. But at some point we’re going to need the clarity of a real campaign finance law." That limit is still being met because half of the $25,000 would go to the primary, and the other half to the general election.
