Former Wall Street executive Ray McGuire is reportedly being funded heavily by those who are apparently worried that a progressive candidate might emerge as the next mayor of New York City.

Eight years later, another onslaught of barely regulated money is heading New York’s way, with super PACs poised to play an outsize role in the race for mayor, the most important election in recent city history.
