While campaigning for governor last year, Gavin Newsom said he wouldn’t be swayed by political donations.

Just because an organization supports you, he said, you’re not necessarily “an apologist for their point of view.”

That doesn’t mean donors aren’t trying. Labor unions, housing developers and wealthy entrepreneurs are among the thousands of people and groups who gave money to help elect Newsom, according to the final disclosure reports filed by his campaign.
