The Biggest State Level Campaign Donors Of 2015

Bill Mahoney takes a  look at the state’s top political contributors in Politico:

“The 25 largest donors to state-level politicians and political parties last year included several hedge fund managers, labor unions and a PAC controlled by a former leader of the Senate.

The donors, topped by hedge funder Stanley Druckenmiller, the Trial Lawyers Association and the health care union 1199SEIU, combined to contribute $10 million, according to a POLITICO New York analysis of state Board of Elections records. This falls below the total from 2013, when the 25 biggest donors contributed $11.9 million.
Notably, the number of real estate firms at the top of the list has dropped dramatically. Four New York City developers cracked the top 25 in 2013 but only one, Howard Milstein, an ally to Gov. Andrew Cuomo, made it in 2015.”
