Republican Attorney General contender Dan Donovan is having a $1,000-a-head “cocktail reception” at the home of Mayor Bloomberg Wednesday evening, one of the many nice benefits that comes with the mayor’s strong endorsement.
Bloomberg has been outspoken in his support for Donovan, the Staten Island DA, showing more enthusiasm than for any other statewide candidate. His former campaign manager, Bradley Tusk, is a consultant for the campaign, and Cathy Blaney, a GOP fundraiser who has ties to Mayor Bloomberg, is fundraising for Donovan.
Here’s an abbreviated version of the invite that was sent out:
150 Broadway – Suite 1011

Re: Finance Committee cocktail reception for Daniel M. Donovan at the Residence of Mayor
Michael R. Bloomberg.
On Wednesday, June 16th, 2010 Daniel M. Donovan will be in Manhattan for a fundraising reception at the home of Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg from 6:00p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
Donovan was first elected Staten Island District Attorney in 2003, becoming the first Republican-elected District Attorney in New York City in over five decades. In 2007, with the endorsements of the Republican, Conservative and Independence parties, he was overwhelmingly re-elected with nearly 68% of the vote in a majority Democratic county.
