Flanagan hits Booker over powerbroker fundraiser

Candidate says incumbent’s promise not to take PAC money is disingenuous

By Nikita Biryukov, June 29 2019 3:49 pm

Republican Senate candidate Tricia Flanagan took aim at U.S. Sen. Cory Booker over a fundraiser for his presidential campaign hosted by George Norcross and Essex County Executive Joe DiVincenzo.

“It’s easy for Sen. Booker to pledge not to accept PAC money when he’s attending a fundraiser co-hosted by the man most political observers view as the person connected to the General Majority PAC,” Flanagan said. “How many donors to General Majority will be at today’s fundraiser?”

An advisor for Norcross told the New Jersey Globe that the $2,800-per-head fundraiser brought in roughly $470,000.

Like many in the Democratic primary field, Booker has pledged not to take money from corporate PACs.

Flanagan said she there was little difference between taking money from PACs and from those who fundraise for PACs.

“My point is, it’s easy to say you won’t accept PAC money when you have the people raising money for PACs raising money for you. It makes Mr. Booker’s no PAC money pledge disingenuous,” Flanagan said. “Frankly, I’m surprised Cory Booker’s fellow progressives haven’t figured it out.”
