Former U.S. Attorney Chris Christie filed $185,254 in new donations to his gubernatorial campaign with the Election Law Enforcement Commission today.
If certified, that $185,254 will get Christie another $370,508 in matching funds from the state. Including today’s filing and assuming it gets tripled, Christie has raised $3.66 million so far.
Christie’s rival for the GOP nomination, Steve Lonegan, also filed today, with $137,135 in new submissions, which is approved will get him $274,270 more in matching funds.
GOP candidates David Brown, Richard Merkt and Brian Levine did not raise the $340,000 needed to qualify for matching funds. Governor Corzine has said he will not take matching funds, and none of his Democratic primary opponents – Roger Bacon, Carl Bergmanson and Jeff Boss – qualified.

"Assembly Speaker Vincent Prieto, a Hudson County Democrat, is balking. He claimed Tuesday that members of his caucus are divided over the measure and that his house is in no real rush – besides, even if enacted this year, the reforms would not take effect until 2017, he said. And with the growing belief that Christie could skip town to run for president, some Democrats are not eager to give him another talking point for his résumé. Christie’s plans to stump for Republican candidates in New Hampshire later Thursday only fuel that suspicion." - columnist Charles Stile- The Bergen Record
