Ojeda raised $12k from New Jersey

Richard Ojeda, a former West Virginia state senator and retired Army major who sought the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination before dropping out last week, raised $12,660 from New Jersey donors.

Among his big New Jersey contributors: Robert Fernholz, a Princeton mathematician, contributed $2,700; so did his wife, Luisa, a statistics professor at Temple University, and Montclair businessman Bart Krupp.  David Brown, a real estate developer from Teaneck, gave $1,485 to Ojeda’s campaign.  Chatham attorney John Mariano gave him $1,000.

Ojeda said he didn’t want to ask for money for a race he couldn’t win.

“The last thing I want to do is accept money from people who are struggling for a campaign that does not have the ability to compete,” Ojeda said in his withdrawal statement.
