Ciattarelli meets public financing threshold - New Jersey Globe
Former Assemblyman Jack Ciattarelli has raised $517,431 for his bid against Phil Murphy, passing the $490,000 fundraising milestone needed to qualify for matched public matching funds.
“For our campaign to reach the threshold for matching funds nearly one-year in advance of the 2021 primary election — in the midst of a global pandemic — speaks volumes to the efforts of Jack and our Finance Committee,” Ciattarelli Finance Chairman Jeff Vanderbeek said. “It also underscores the growing sentiment among New Jersey voters that Phil Murphy needs to be ‘ONE and DONE in ’21.’”
New Jersey provides matching public financing, up to a cap, for gubernatorial candidates who raise or commit to spend more than $430,000. In 2017, the fund matching was capped at $6.4 million for the gubernatorial primary and $13.8 million for the general election.
