Posted Wednesday, July 16th 2014 @ 7am  by Associated Press

Albany, N.Y. — New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo has raised another $8.5 million for his re-election, adding to a campaign account that now boasts a balance of more than $35 million.

Cuomo's campaign disclosed the numbers Tuesday, which was the deadline for candidates to file their six-month finance reports with the state.

The Democratic governor reported $6.8 million in campaign expenses over that time. He already had $33 million in his account when the filing period began in January.

Cuomo's Republican opponent, meanwhile, has much less to work with. Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino raised $3.4 million in the past six months to give his campaign a balance of $2.4 million.
