0

corzineNJ Gov. Jon Corzine has spent three times as much so far in his re-election bid as Republican Chris Christie. New Jersey election law monitors today released the latest campaign spending disclosures from both candidates and Independent Chris Daggett.

Corzine is largely paying for his own campaign. He has spent $16.8 million.

Christie and Daggett are accepting public financing, which means neither can raise or spend more than $11 million.

Christie has collected $9.6 million, including public matching money, and has spent $5.4 million.

Daggett has raised $1.1 million, including matching funds, and spent a bit under $1 million.

The expenditures don’t include what outside groups have spent.{NJ Gazette/Matzav.com Newscenter}
