From the Daily News:
Embattled City Controller John Liu raised nearly $600,000 in the past six months for his mayoral bid — despite a federal probe into his campaign finances.
“I am deeply moved and gratified by the faith and support shown by so many voters and supporters,” Liu said in a statement released Friday.
Liu’s campaign haul — boosting his campaign warchest to $2.5 million — was impressive for a candidate determined to stay in the race despite the taint of scandal, but he’s fallen behind Public Advocate Bill de Blasio, who picked up $800,000 in the same period and now has around $3 million.
Both candidates are still trying to catch up with City Council Speaker Christine Quinn, whose warchest has reached about $5.8 million.
And if Anthony Weiner wants to jump in, he still has $4.5M.
