Gov. Chris Christie is playing his campaign financing options close to the vest so far, declining through a campaign operative to answer whether he plans to accept matching funds in his bid for re-election.
Mike DuHaime, who will play a prominent role in the campaign, said the campaign is not making its plans public as of yet.
Christie announced today that he has raised $2.1 million for the June primary, the maximum amount of private funds allowed should he take the public match. With the state match, Christie would have $5.6 million to spend in what will likley be an uncontested primary election.
Should he choose to accept matching primary funds, as many speculate he will, he is not bound by that decision for the general election, when the governor is expected to have as much as $40 million in contributions at his disposal. Were he to accept matching funds for the general election he would be limited to about $12 million in campaign spending.
