Some Democratic donors who contributed to Suffolk County Executive Steve Levy's past campaigns want their money back now that he has switched parties to run for governor as a Republican.
A group of contributors discussed the matter at a news conference today organized by the state Democratic Party.
The party's new executive director, Charlie King, attended the event. He's a close adviser to Attorney General Andrew Cuomo, the all-but-certain Democratic nominee.
Since entering the race, Levy has been pressing his case to Republican county officials around the state, many of whom are skeptical about his party conversion.
