Gov. Andrew Cuomo raised more than $5 million in the first six months of 2017, and a sliver of that total came from donors in central New York.
Cuomo raised $107,640 from central New York residents, businesses and other entities, according to his latest campaign finance report. He now has more than $25 million in the bank for his 2018 re-election bid.
The largest central New York donor was Friends of Del Lago, a political action committee formed by del Lago Resort & Casino in Seneca County. The casino’s PAC made two donations to Cuomo’s campaign totaling $35,000 — nearly one-third of the amount the governor raised in the region.
