A Morristown Democrat who hosted a high-dollar fundraiser for Cory Booker at her home last month also wrote a big check to another presidential contender.
Barbara Sellinger contributed $1,000 to Kamala Harris, according to a report filed with the Federal Election Commission. The contribution was made on March 8 – the day after the Booker fundraiser.
Sellinger has not contributed to Booker.
Harris raised $102,219 from New Jersey donors as part of a $13.2 million first quarter haul.
Michael Kempner, a New Jersey public relations executive who served as one of Hillary Clinton’s national finance co-chairs in 2009 and later as the deputy finance chairman of the Democratic National Committee, contributed $2,700 to Harris.
Kempner also contributed $5,600 to Amy Klobuchar.
Another Harris donor is Linda Weber, who sought the Democratic nomination for Congress in New Jersey’s 7th district last year before dropping out.
Deepak Raj, the head of a private investment firm and one of Gov. Phil Murphy’s appointees to the New Jersey State Investment Council, contributed $2,700 to Harris. Raj also contributed $2,700 to Booker and $2,800 to Tulsi Gabbard.
While Booker reported raising nearly $1.9 million from his home state, the other presidential candidates combined to raise $471,566 from New Jersey contributors.
