GOP Donors Gave To GOP Candidates, Andrew Cuomo This Election Cycle

From the Capital Playbook Newsletter:

Capital’s Laura Nahmias and Bill Mahoney: Governor Cuomo's top donors gave six times more money to help elect Republicans to the State Senate than they did to similar efforts to aid Democrats, a Capital New York analysis shows. The governor's top 25 donors gave Cuomo's campaign committee $5.1 million between December 1, 2010 and October 24, 2014. The same group of people and organizations spent only $444,604 contributing to Senate Democrats or independent expenditure committees that supported Democrats in this year's election cycle, while they spent $2.7 million—over six times as much money—helping the campaigns of Senate Republicans. Cuomo was criticized by some Democrats for appearing to renege on a promise he made in May this year to help Democrats win control of the Senate.

Gee, how could anybody say that there's a link between the State GOP not helping GOP candidate Astorino and Cuomo not helping State Senate Democrats take back the State Senate?

So what if it appears GOP donors were sending their largesse to every GOP candidate in the state except for Rob Astorino and instead sending those checks to Andrew Cuomo.
