Coalition for Progress Raises $150K at Lunch Event, Now Has Over $5.5 Million Cash on Hand
After a successful lunch fundraiser event today in Jersey City, the Coalition for Progress Super PAC raised $150,000 at today’s event and now over $500,000 for the second quarter of 2022. Coalition For Progress now has more than $5.5 Million in the bank as it looks to expand its engagement in upcoming elections throughout the state. The event was headlined by a trio of Hudson County Mayors, including Jersey City’s Steve Fulop, Ravi Bhalla of Hoboken and Bayonne’s Jimmy Davis, who was recently re-elected to a new term. Also in attendance were Hudson County Democratic Organization Chairman Anthony Vanieri, Hudson County Commissioner Anthony Romano, and Fort Lee Mayor Mark Sokolich.The massive fundraising figure shows that the group plans to be a significant factor in the state’s political scene, helping Democrats who share in its mission of lifting up working and middle class families, creating greater economic opportunities and moving New Jersey forward. “Hudson County is our state’s economic growth engine and we were proud to honor three Mayors today who are at the forefront of that renaissance,” said Coalition for Progress Chairman Drew Nussbaum, who hosted the event along with Gregory DellAquila and Michael Novak. Coalition for Progress has so far dipped its toes into supporting candidates, but it has already picked up two victories in helping re-elect Hillside Mayor Dahlia Vertreese and Roselle Council President Denise Wilkerson. The Super PAC plans to engage in congressional races this November and the state legislative races in 2023 as it continues to expand its footprint by supporting candidates that share its values.
