Mayor Bloomberg's Super PAC Scores Victories (and Losses) on Election Night
Last week, we reported on the millions spent by the Hizzoner's self-constructed super PAC on House campaigns across the country in the lead-up to Election Day. The money was sent to candidates that the mayor shared similar views with, whether it was on education, small business initiatives or same-sex marriage (a cause that he donated an additional $750,000 to defend).
- Syracuse Representative Dan Maffei (R) will reclaim his seat in Congress.
Gift from Bloomberg: $36,263. And he spent $366,946 against Maffei's opponent, Ann Marie Buerkle.
