Gov. Andrew Cuomo has yet to find a worthy 2014 opponent, and the latest news on his campaign fund doesn't make the job any more enticing. The Wall Street Journal found that Cuomo had $27.8 million in his campaign account as of July, which is nearly three times as much as California's Jerry Brown, the second-most-successful gubernatorial fundraiser in the country. He'll probably have millions left over, which could be helpful in 2016. While it's illegal to transfer state campaign funds to a federal campaign account, with super-PACs all things are possible.
