Gov. Andrew Cuomo, one of the state’s most prodigious political fundraisers, is calling for lower caps on the amount of money candidates for office can raise.

Statewide candidates would have donations to their campaigns capped at $10,000 for a primary and $15,000 for the generally election, a decline from the $44,000 limit in a general election contest.

Candidates for the state Senate would have their contributions capped at $5,000 each for the primary and general election, down from the $11,000 general election limit and $7,000 ceiling in a primary.

In the Assembly, candidates there would be limited to $3,000 in both the general and primary election.

Cuomo has also called for the public financing of political campaigns with a small donor matching system.

“For far too long, rich corporations and the wealthiest one percent have influenced our elections and drowned out the voices of ordinary New Yorkers,” Cuomo said. “Now is the time to implement real campaign finance reform in New York. Let’s overhaul our campaign financing system by incentivizing candidates to focus on small donors, not large corporations, and lowering campaign contribution limits and give the power back to New Yorkers once and for all.”

Cuomo is known for being an aggressive fundraiser. He spent $35.5 million on his re-election campaign. The entire four-year cycle, Cuomo spent $43.1 million. He has $5 million left in his campaign account.
