It looks like a super PAC with ties to former Gov. Chris Christie is hitting the mailboxes in a bid to unseat Democratic U.S. Senator Bob Menendez.
Integrity NJ reported to the Federal Election Commission last week that they have spent $24,990 to produce a direct mail piece in opposition to Menendez, and another $38,995 for postage to send it out.
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.
The super PAC has already spent more than $1.5 million on TV ads attacking Menendez.
