Republican Mangano raised about $750,000 for his entire campaign, but scooped in $182,217.50 between Nov. 26th and the end of the year, according to the latest filing with the state Board of Elections. Mangano has $216,409 in his campaign account.

Democrat Thomas Suozzi, who lost to Mangano, appears not to have done any significant fundraising, but has $1.67 million in the bank.
