Exec threw Hochul fundraiser weeks before landing $637M deal | News

ALBANY (TNS) – Gov. Kathy Hochul claims when her government paid a vendor $637 million for COVID-19 tests last winter, she didn’t know the recipient was a campaign donor.

“I wasn’t aware that this was a company that had backed me,” Hochul told reporters at a July 20 news conference. “I’m not following that. My team, you have no idea.”
