Having endorsed Gov. Chris Christie last month, the Laborers are already pitching cash to the incumbent Republican governor, according to the state Election Law Enforcement Commission (ELEC).
In December, the Laborers gave Christie $15,200, according to ELEC.
The contributions came in the form of four $3,800 checks from Laborers affiliates.
The labor organization endorsed the governor on Dec. 18th.
At that time, Laborers Leader Ray Pocino cited the GOP governor's accomplishments, including his signing the Higher Education Bond act, which he said will lead to more than $1 billion in construction, including new classrooms and labs; authorization of the Transportation Trust Fund for roads and bridges improvement totaling an estimated $5 billion, and his support for the Revel Casino project and the Bayonne Bridge.

"This is my first Mark Smith event. There have been a lot of changes in Hudson County over the last year and a half, and the most important change that has happened is that there really is unity. For the first time, we really are working together. Despite political differences. Mark and I have worked very hard to repair that. I'm really happy to be here in support of him, because I recognize that when you work together, politics becomes secondary and you really have time to focus on government, which is the most important thing." - Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop- PolitickerNJ.com
