Governor Cuomo has nearly $20M in his campaign war chest and is holding a big fundraiser on December 6 to raise even more. The seats at the Waldorf for the Governor's 55th birthday cost up to $25K.
The sheer volume of dollars ensures no serious challengers to Mr. Cuomo in 2014 and gives him seed money for an expected Presidential run in 2016.
Meanwhile the Governor wants Washington to appropriate $30B for Sandy storm damage as he prepares for the current President to visit the NY metro area this week to review the damage.
