Gov. Chris Christie’s re-election campaign reported raising more than $2.1 million in a little over a month, officials said.

The campaign, which launched on Nov. 26, boasted raising the amount “without a single event and in the midst of the holiday season.”

“Governor Christie's campaign continues to gain momentum because New Jerseyans believe in his decisive leadership," said campaign strategist Mike DuHaime in a statement.

"This unprecedented financial support in such a short time demonstrates the overwhelming support from residents across the Garden State. Governor Christie has made tough choices to achieve real progress on meaningful reforms for all New Jerseyans,” he said. “Whether it's cutting taxes, improving education or pension and benefit reform, Governor Christie has fought for a middle-class reform agenda that protects taxpayers and reins in the cost of government.”

The lone declared candidate among Democratic elected officials hoping to challenge Christie, state Sen. Barbara Buono, raised nearly $250,000.
