If the money is any indication of popularity, three of the many, many mayoral candidates in the June 22 Democratic primary are ahead of the game as the date draws nearer.
Andrew Yang, one of the most recent entries into the race, says he has raised $6.5 million in the last 57 days from 15,600 donors, while city Comptroller Scott Stringer announced having $9.14 million in the proverbial bank and Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams has about $9.3 million in his coffers.
“I am overwhelmed by the support our campaign has received from every corner of this city,” Adams said. “Working people – everyday New Yorkers – are propelling this campaign, and our contributors represent the beautiful diversity of New York. Our campaign has the most support because we are a movement to deliver what hard-working New Yorkers deserve: a fair, safe, prosperous city that puts them first.”
