Phil Murphy Leads Kim Guadagno in Campaign Spending

Last Edited:

With Election Day only a few weeks away, the candidates running to take the governor's seat are busy raising money to fund their final weeks of campaigning.

Democrat Phil Murphy has raised roughly three times more cash than Republican candidate Lieutenant Governor Kim Guadagno in the race to succeed Chris Christie.

The Election Law Enforcement Commission said on Thursday, October 12th, that Murphy has raised $10.3 million so far to Guadagno's $3 million.

Murphy has spent about $5 million so far while Guadagno has doled out $2 million.

That leaves Murphy with more than $5 million in reserves, while Guadagno has less than $1 million.

Murphy leads Guadagno in polls ahead of the November 7th election.
