Steve Lonegan qualifies for matching funds

Author: Rory B. Bellows

Conservative Activst Steve Lonegan has reached the fundraising level necessary to qualify for matching public funds. New Jersey gives cadidates two dollars in public money for every dollar they raise. While we here at Living Jersey abhor any public financing of campaigns, Mayor Lonegan raises a legitimate point in that by limiting the amoung of money he can collect from individual donors he is forced to accept public money. This is going to allow Lonegan to start the campaign with a little over $800,000. This is not going to be a coroation for GOP establishment bcked Chris Christie. Steve Lonegan is going to run a serious and credible campaign. Where he will contrast his grass roots conservatism with Christie’s estbalishment moderation, which has been a time and time again loser in statewide races. Not only do New Jersey Republicans deserve this, but the entire state does as well.
