Buono submits $41k for match

Presumptive Democratic gubernatorial nominee Barbara Buono submitted $41,884 for the public match yesterday.

The submission brings her total raised so far in this primary election to $738,000.  To date, she has been awarded $1.02 million in matched funds under the state program that gives her $2 for every $1 raised.

Buono has just over a month to reach the $2 million threshold to receive the maximum state match.

Her opponent, Republican Gov. Chris Christie chose not to accept matching funds in the primary.
