Thursday is New York s Democratic primary election and the wallets of the city s real estate and construction concerns won t close until the polls do.
Candidates for state senate and attorney general have raked in more than $161,000 from property and construction labor groups since Monday, an analysis of Board of Elections campaign contributions by The Real Deal has found. Much of that money has gone to Attorney General candidate and current Democratic congressman Sean Patrick Maloney, who took in an extra $60,500 from developers, including RFR Realty s Aby Rosen and Michael Fuchs, Helena Durst, and Henry Elghanayan.
New York City Public Advocate Letitia James, another AG candidate who has received plenty of real estate contributions, also pulled in $17,500 from real estate-connected donors including Eastern Union Funding co-founder and mortgage broker Abraham Bergman ($5,000) and SL Green Realty ($10,000).
Added together, James and Maloney have raised well in excess of $700,000 from real estate donors this election cycle, with Maloney raising the most from the industry.
In just the last three days before election day, construction labor unions have also doled out cash上海龙凤论坛sh1f
