Norcross has nearly $1.5 million cash-on-hand

No primary opponent for South Jersey Democrat

Rep. Donald Norcross (D-Camden) has $1,498,023 cash-on-hand for his re-election campaign in New Jersey’s 1st district.

Norcross raised $255,557 during the 4th quarter of 2019 and a total of $1,245,521 last year.

The five-term South Jersey congressman spent $173,442 over the last three months of the year and a total of $678,358 for 2019.

Norcross faces a challenge from Republican Clair Gustafson, a former Collingswood school board member.

Leaders of the progressive wing of the New Jersey Democratic Party continue to give early support to Norcross’ re-election, seemingly closing the door on a possible challenge to him in the 2020 Democratic primary.

New Jersey CWA State Director Hetty Rosenstein and New Jersey Education Association President Marie Blistan co-hosted a high-dollar fundraiser last fall.

Gov. Phil Murphy has already endorsed his re-election.

He spent $26,600 on polling in October, according to reports filed with the Federal Election Commission.

Norcross faced a challenge in the 2016 Democratic primary from a supporter of Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign, Alex Law.  He won by 32,767 votes, a margin of 70%-30%.
