Democrat Eric Adams is very ready for the forthcoming mayoralty race in New York City in November.

Sources said the retired NYPD captain-turned-pol has raised $2 million over the last 43 days, a war chest for what’s essentially a skirmish with a pre-ordained victor.

The campaign war chest of Adams is way larger than the $200,000 in contributions collected by Republican Curtis Sliwa.

Sources revealed Adams wants to win by a landslide so that he can have the mandate to pursue his law-and-order agenda at a City Hall with a lefty legislature.

Adams was able to collect the huge amount of money by casting a wide net– hitting up both Democrats and Republicans from Queens to the Hamptons and Martha’s Vineyard—and keeping a brisk schedule of up to five events a day.

It was learned that Ken Fisher, a politically connected real estate attorney, hosted a recent fundraiser for Adams at the Sky Bridge Terrace at 2 World Trade Center that brought in $50,000.

“It’s an opportunity for him to go out and reinforce the narrative and the image that he wants to create for himself and to take advantage of the fact that he’s a hot commodity. People want to hear what he has to say,” Fisher said.

Meanwhile, Billionaire supermarket mogul John Catsimatidis, who hosted a fundraiser in the Hamptons for Adams earlier this summer, says he hopes the mayoral nominee will use the excess cash to fund more moderate council members.
