2013 Mayoral Candidates: Where are they raising their money?

Wednesday, January 18, 2012

With all the 2013 periodic filings in, WNYC's John Keefe has updated our map to show where candidates have been raising funds over the past year.

It's interesting to see the top tier candidates pulling big bucks from the Mill Basin/Marine Park section of Brooklyn--one of the borough's wealthier areas, and decidedly conservative. Only Liu has really avoided the area.

Also, it's fun to pull back and go upstate to see the fundraising drive of all the candidates marching up the Hudson River.

Senate Republicans continue to dominate Dems on fundraising

Monday, July 18, 2011

NYPIRG's Bill Mahoney continues to crunch the recent financial disclosure reports:

While disclosure reports for eight active committees controlled by senators have yet to appear online, the recent arrival of the DSCC’s housekeeping committee means that some general trends can be noted. Republican candidates and their conference committee ($6,619,296.70) raised more than three times as much as Democrats ($2,172,168.86).   Democrats, however, spent more ($2,818,717.30) than Republicans ($2,187,133.82).  Republicans have $10,568,859.83 in the bank; Democrats have $4,254,488.47, but their party committee’s debt load means that their actual balance is closer to $1,915,520.94.

The three Independent Democratic Conference members who have filed with the state board of elections reported raising $695,572.59--of which Mayor Michael Bloomberg provided $30,900.

We're still waiting on the filings of Senators Flanagan, Dilan, Sampson, Parker, Diaz, Carlucci, Seward, and Ball. Check out NYPIRG's breakdown below.
