Pagliuca Campaign Gets Lots of PE (and NBA) Love

Steve Pagliuca has not yet caught fire with voters in Massachusetts, where he’s running to succeed Ted Kennedy in the U.S. Senate. Most recent polls put him in third place (or tied for third), at least 15 points behind frontrunner Martha Coakley.

But one place Pagliuca has lots of support is among his private equity peers. His September campaign report shows a total of 96 contributions for the primary campaign, of which 23 come from individuals currently employed at private equity firms. Most of this is from Bain Capital colleagues, but there also are outside notables like Kevin Landry of TA Associates and Bill Egan of Alta Communications.

Then there are several more contributions from spouses of PE professionals, from Bain portfolio company executives (e.g., Weather Channel CEO Michael Kelly), Wall Street execs (e.g., Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein), attorneys (e.g., Matthew Steinmetz of Kirkland & Ellis) and HBS professors (e.g., Michael Porter).

Finally, Pagliuca also has tapped contacts made during his stint as co-owner of the Boston Celtics. These include NBA Commission David Stern, Memphis general manager Chris Wallace, Celtics GM Danny Ainge and Celtics coach Doc Rivers. Get the full list below:
