Dem donors want money back from Levy
(AP) - A group of Steve Levy's campaign contributorswant their money back, and were in Long Island to tell him so.
The Suffolk County executive switched parties last month to runfor governor as a Republican. That's angered some Democraticdonors. They held a press conference today outside Levy's officeto ask him to return the cash.
The event was organized by the state Democratic Party andits new executive director, Charlie King. King is a close adviserto state Attorney General Andrew Cuomo. He's the all-but-certainDemocratic nominee.
Levy ran for county executive in 2003 and was re-elected in2007. He had started his governor's race with $3.5 million in thebank. That's far more than his top Republican rival, former Rep.Rick Lazio.
