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."

"And here was Christie — a tell-it-like-it-is, straight-talking, no-nonsense Jersey guy — telling about 60 members of the media what he really thought. 'Governor Branstad is a role model for me,' Christie gushed, referring to his 67-year-old counterpart from Iowa."
