Ward E Councilman Steven Fulop has so far raised more than $1.2 million in his campaign for mayor of Jersey City, and has more than $830,000 cash on hand compared to incumbent Mayor Jerrry Healy's $350,000 COH.
In the quarter that ended Dec. 31, 2012, Fulop raised nearly $225,000, the Fulop campaign said. Of the nearly 284 donors who contributed to the campaign during the period, almost half contributed $200 or less.
“The small donations we receive from throughout Jersey City make up the financial backbone of this campaign,” Fulop said. “Our fundraising reflects the widespread, grassroots support we have for our campaign.”

"Christie’s method for coping with scandal has been more complicated. In January, the seemingly-local issue of lane closings on the George Washington Bridge, which created a massive traffic jam in the Hudson River town of Fort Lee, became one of national interest when it was revealed that one of Christie’s closest staffers had ordered them—for what looked like political retribution against a Democratic mayor. The scandal was quickly dubbed 'Bridgegate,' and unfortunately for Christie, it played into his reputation as a bully. Christie's response was to act unlike himself: humble." - Olivia Nuzzi- The Daily Beast
