Integrity NJ, a super PAC with ties to former Gov. Chris Christie, has spend another $87,500 on a digital media buy in opposition to U.S. Senator Bob Menendez’s re-election, according to a report filed on Monday with the Federal Election Commission.
That brings the total spent by the group against Menendez to $3,674,671 so far this year.
Christie is supporting one of his campaign fundraisers, Bob Hugin, for the Senate seat.
Integrity NJ is headed by Phil Cox and Pete Sheridan, both of whom have close ties to Christie.
Cox, the group’s chairman and senior advisor, was executive director of the Republican Governors Association when Christie was chairman of the group. He also headed America Leads, a super PAC founded to back Christie’s 2016 presidential run.
Sheridan, formerly the executive director of the New Jersey GOP, worked on both of Christie’s gubernatorial campaigns and served on Christie’s transition out of the governorship. Sheridan is the PAC’s executive director.
