Christie For Governor Campaign Raking In The Cash
Last month Governor Christie made it official – he will seek re-election in the fall.
Since the announcement, his campaign has wasted no time in raising lots of money.
The Chris Christie for Governor campaign has brought in more than 2.1 million dollars since it was organized 36 days ago.
Campaign strategist Mike DuHaime says "Governor Christie's campaign continues to gain momentum because New Jerseyans believe in his decisive leadership, this unprecedented financial support in such a short time demonstrates the overwhelming support from residents across the Garden State.”
He also says “Governor Christie has made tough choices to achieve real progress on meaningful reforms for all New Jerseyans. Whether it's cutting taxes, improving education or pension and benefit reform, Governor Christie has fought for a middle-class reform agenda that protects taxpayers and reins in the cost of government."
A few weeks ago the Governor received the endorsement of the 20 thousand-member Laborers International Union of North America, which backed Democrat Jon Corzine in the 2009 campaign.
So far, only one democrat has announced plans to run for Governor this year – State Senator Barbara Buono.
