Buying NJ Governorship

I just received the following wire from my generous Daddy; Dear Jack, Don’t buy a single vote more than is necessary. I’ll be damned if I’m going to pay for a landslide.

John F. Kennedy

Next Tuesday in New Jersey we will have a primary election for governor and based on information on the updated New Jersey Election Law Enforcement Commission website here is how much each candidate (and two from prior years) spent personally on all elections in total (buying support) and this primary election to date.

 

Of course these figures do not include contributions made by outside donors and there could be a rush of money coming in just prior to the election but it looks like we have a down payment on a landslide.

Spreadsheets of individual donations by date made:

  1. People must remember it is their vote that counts Corzine lost and look at the huge money he spent a good ground game a large Republican turnout and it will not matter the monies spent, think wisely and for those in Democratically held areas take a real hard look at your crime rate infrastructure and property taxes. Please look at what they pay themselves. By ant means please get out and vote no needs your help more than M’s Guadagno. Voting is a right in America do not waste it.
