Brian Bergen has reported raising $25,145 for his bid for the Republican nomination for State Assembly in the 25th district. That includes an $11,883 loan Bergen made to his own campaign.
The Denville councilman has spent $13,443 and has $11,187 in his campaign account, according to reports filed with the New Jersey Election Law Enforcement Commission.
Bergen reported a $500 contribution from Frelinghuysen for Congress, the campaign account of former Rep. Rodney Frelinghuysen (R-Harding). Frelinghuysen held the 25th district Assembly seat from 1984 to 1995.
A West Point graduate and Army helicopter pilot, Bergen is seeking the open seat of Michael Patrick Carroll (R-Morris Township), who is leaving the Assembly after 24 years to run for Morris County Surrogate.
Incumbent Anthony M. Bucco (R-Boonton), who narrowly won re-election two years ago, is seeking his sixth term in the Assembly.
The report reflects total funds raised and spent this cycle, through December 31, 2018.
