Democratic Activists Push For More Control Of Party’s Finances

In Politico, Bill Mahoney reports “(a)ctivists within New York’s Democratic Party are pushing to have a greater say in how the party spends its money in future elections.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo repeatedly has proven to be one of the most adroit fundraisers in the country. But since he effectively took control of the state’s Democratic apparatus seven years ago, the party has put up relatively anemic fundraising numbers, at least compared to his own and Democrats in other states. And when the party has mounted significant fundraising drives, the money often has gone to benefit Cuomo’s agenda.”
