Bucco becomes a top GOP fundraiser

By David Wildstein, August 18 2021 9:51 pm

Circumstances have put State Sen. Anthony M. Bucco (R-Boonton) in an unusual position: he’s running for the legislature for the third time in as many years.

Bucco ran for the Assembly in 2019, for the Senate to fill his late father’s unexpired term in 2020, and now for his bid for a full term in the Morris County-based 26th district.

After two hard-fought races, Bucco has emerged as one of the most prolific Republican fundraisers in the state, bring in a haul of over $750,000 during the last three election cycles.  That’s second only to Tom Kean, Jr., the Senate minority leader.

Bucco raised over $100,000 at a golf outing on Monday.

“This is the biggest event we’ve ever had, and this August fundraiser continues to grow each and every year,” Bucco said.  “I’m so lucky to have this level of support from so many friends for my campaign.”

Last year, Bucco set a record for receiving the most number of votes of any candidate for the New Jersey Legislature under a 40-district map.
