Albany – He may be promoting a taxpayer-funded campaign system, but Gov. Andrew Cuomo is doing quite okay playing by the current rules.
The governor reported this afternoon that his campaign raised $7 million in the past six months.
That brings his 2014 campaign bank account up to $33.3 million, an increase from $27.8 million in July. He spent just $1.5 million in the past six months.
Lt. Gov. Robert Duffy, meanwhile, who Cuomo has declined to say whether he will be his running mate this fall, reported raising no contributions. Duffy has not raised a penny in contributions since January 2, 2013.
