  • PROFILE:

    A Greek-born billionaire, Catsimatidis runs the Gristedes grocery chain. He ran for Mayor in 2009, but dropped out once Michael Bloomberg announced he would run for a third term. Having never held public office, Catsimatidis is still no stranger to politics, consistently playing the role of major donor for both Republicans and Democrats.
