Murphy raises $300k for state party

Event held at the governor’s Middletown home

By David Wildstein, August 22 2019 1:03 pm

The New Jersey Democratic State Committee raised over $300,000 on Wednesday night at a fundraiser held at the home of Gov. Phil Murphy and First Lady Tammy Murphy.

Attendees included CWA State Director Hetty Rosenstein, NJEA Vice President and Montclair Deputy Mayor Sean Spiller, NJEA Secretary-Treasurer Steve Beatty, and 23BJ SEIU state director Kevin Brown.

The state party reported having $341,866 cash-on-hand in their July 15 report filed with the New Jersey Election Law Enforcement Commission.

Murphy’s work to fill the state party coffers in advance of the 2019 mid-term elections helps boost the profiles of Democratic State Chairman John Currie and Vice Chair Peg Schaffer.  Currie faces a challenge for re-election later this year against Essex County Democratic Chairman LeRoy Jones, Jr.

Representatives of the Laborers’ International Union of North American, the Amalgamated Transit Union, the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, the Retail, Wholesale and Department Store Union, the United Food and Commercial Workers Union, and the Plumbers and Pipefitters Local 9 were also in attendance, along with lobbyists Bill Maer and Rudy Garcia, and lawyers Joe Baumann and Nevins McCann.
