A Democratic tsunami may be headed for Albany, but so is a bunch of money to make sure at least one house stays Republican.
In the last days of the campaign season, contributions over $1,000 have to be filed with the state Board of Election within a 24 hours period. Yesterday alone, the New York Republican State Senate Campaign Committee filed around $349,950 in large contributions. (Compare that to the $67,000 Assembly Democratic Campaign Committee raised over the same 24-hour period.)
The biggest help for Senate Republicans came from I. A. Morris ($20,000); Tom Golisano($50,000), and the New York Association of Homes and Services for the Aging – NYAHSA – ($32,000) .
The 24-hour filing contributions database is over here.
Feel free to point out anything interesting. (Like the $25,000 contribution Newmark executive Jeffrey Gural gave yesterday to Andrew Cuomo).
