Cuomo fundraiser back at the Hyatt

  
   By Robert J. McCarthy

   It's back to the Hyatt Regency Buffalo for Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo's big fundraiser on Nov. 19.

   Cuomo supporters had originally slated an event aiming to raise several hundred thousand dollars for Cuomo 2014 on Nov. 6 at the Hyatt. But that event was suddenly switched to Templeton Landing, a move skeptical leaders of the Independent Oil and Gas Association say stemmed from their meeting slated for the same night on the same Hyatt floor.

   “It may or may not be a coincidence; maybe he was not comfortable with us right across the hall,” said Brad Gill, IOGA’s executive directo, in early November. “I certainly find it ironic.”

   But in another twist of irony, sources close to Cuomo say the event rescheduled for Nov. 19 is now back at the Hyatt -- presumably with no pro-fracking groups right across the hall.
