Gov. Jon Corzine has raised $24.1 million and spent $23.6 million on the general election campaign so far, according to 11-day pre-election reports filed with the Election Law Enforcement Commission. 

Of Corzine's total raised, $22.6 million is from his own pocket.

Republican gubernatorial Christopher Christie has maxed out on matching funds, raising a total of $11.7 million and spending $8.8 million, while independent Christopher Daggett has raised $1.3 million and spent $1.2 million. 

Christie has the most cash on hand, at $3.6 million.  That sum will not grow, however, since Christie is bound by a cap on campaign funds that Corzine, who does not participate in the public financing program, is not.  Daggett has $292,495 on hand and Corzine has $412,410.

The totals do not include heavy spending by outside groups or money raised or spent by the candidates after October 20.

Combined, the three major candidates have raised 15% less and spent 23% less than Corzine and Republican gubernatorial candidate Doug Forrester did four years ago.

"The financial activity reported by the candidates follows the same pattern displayed in the 29-day pre-election reports, which also showed a decrease in receipts and expenditures," said ELEC Executive Director Jeff Brindle.

The nine other candidates for governor have raised a total of $44,802 and have spent $26,305.

Quote of the Day

quote of the day

"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
