A super PAC formed to help Tom Kean, Jr. win a congressional seat in New Jersey’s 7th district raised $151,350 in 2019, according to reports filed with the Federal Election Commission.

The Perfect Together PAC was formed in September by Roger Bodman, a longtime Kean family friend who held two cabinet posts during the administration of Gov. Thomas Kean in the 1980s.  “New Jersey and You: Perfect Together” was Kean’s catchphrase on TV commercials promoting tourism in the state.

The biggest donors were New York Jets owner Woody Johnson and his 94-year-old mother, Betty Wold Johnson.  Each contributed $50,000 to the PAC.

Johnson is currently the U.S. Ambassador to the United Kingdom.

Bodman contributed $10,000 personally and another $10,000 through his lobbying firm, Public Strategies Impact.

Jon Hanson, who served as chairman of the New Jersey Sports and Exposition Authority, contributed $10,000.  Mark Murphy, a real estate investment advisor, also sent $10,000 to the PAC.

Hanson and former State Sen. Diane Allen (R-Edgewater Park) co-chair the PAC with Bodman.
