LD 34 state Senate candidate Mark Alexander reported raising $145,089 since opening a campaign account with the New Jersey Election Law Enforcement Commission (ELEC) in 2012.

A former Senior Advisor to President Barack Obama and Professor at Seton Hall University Law School, Alexander said a majority of the contributions originated from direct person-to-person communications. 

The candidate's breakdown of the report includes the following highlights:

  • $145,089.26 total contributions to date
  • $74,990.26 raised since the last ELEC filing 
  • $124,566.19 cash on hand
  • $45,580 in on-line contributions to date

"I continue to be overwhelmed and humbled by the outpouring of support from friends, family, and colleagues since I announced that I was a candidate for the New Jersey State Senate," said Alexander, who's challenging incumbent state Sen. Nia Gill (D-34).

"I am going to be working the phone lines day-and-night to make sure my campaign has the resources it needs to run a credible and victorious operation," he added. "Every day I am meeting new people and making my case as a strong candidate for the State Senate, and I know we are going to be successful as the days march on towards June 4th."

Quote of the Day

quote of the day

"As soon as you step into the lake on foot or in a boat, you're in the state's domain. I feel bad for the snake, and I hope it gets rescued before it dies when it gets cold. It didn't mean to get let out there. This snake should be one thing we can get together on and not worry about party affiliation. Unless the snake's a Democrat." - Republican Mount Arlington Mayor Arthur Ondish
