Ciattarelli gets another $488k in matching funds

By David Wildstein, May 03 2021 4:40 pm

The New Jersey Election Law Enforcement Commission today approved an additional $488,270 in matching funds for Republican gubernatorial candidate Jack Ciattarelli, bringing him total haul under the state’s public financing system to $3,371,445.

Ciattarelli, the presumptive GOP challenger to Gov. Phil Murphy, can still receive up to $1,228,555 more for his primary campaign if he can raise and spent another $409,518.

Murphy has raised the full match.

By taking public funds, gubernatorial candidates are capped at spending $7.3 million in the primary.

Only Ciattarelli has raised enough to qualify for matching funds.

Phil Rizzo, a Hudson County pastor, appears to have raised enough to qualify, but a state appellate court ruled today that he missed the deadline to file.
