Laborers pitch in at least $15K to Christie Campaign

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.
