Murphy gets another $950k in matching funds

Governor has now hit 56% of full match for general election

By David Wildstein, August 27 2021 10:08 am

Gov. Phil Murphy received an additional $949,718 in matching funds under New Jersey’ gubernatorial public financing law, bringing his total so far to $5,913,656.

Republican Jack Ciattarelli has received $3,021,873 so far from the New Jersey Election Law Enforcement Commission.

New Jersey offers a 2-1 match on most contributions of up to $4,900, after the first $156,000 raised.

Both candidates can receive up to $10.5 million but must agree to an expenditure limit of $15.6 million.

Murphy and Ciattarelli qualified for the full match in the primary election.

An independent candidate must raise $490,000 to qualify for matching funds. So far, none of the three independents have done so.
