New York:____Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams’ campaign announced today that it has raised more than $11 million to make him the next mayor of New York City, and will receive the maximum amount of public matching funds allowed.
The campaign will also have more than $7 million in cash-on-hand once the next round of matching funds are released after raising more than $900,000 over the past two months, which will amount to more than $1.6 million raised for the period after all matching funds are dispersed.
