A campaign official tells The Associated Press the Christie for Governor campaign will make an initial filing Tuesday with more than $4.1 million raised.

The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, was not authorized to speak before the actual filing.

The 2-for-1 match will give the campaign more than $8 million, a sizeable advantage over Christie’s Democratic opponent, Sen. Barbara Buono.

Buono has made only one public filing since winning her party’s primary with $450,000.

The first $120,000 raised is not eligible for the public match.

The maximum amount that can be matched is $4.22 million.

Christie also tapped matching funds in 2009.
