The New Jersey Election Law Enforcement Commission (ELEC) today approved $100,540 in public matching funds for the 2017 gubernatorial primary campaign of Democratic candidate Jim Johnson.
It is the Montclair resident’s second disbursement under the state’s gubernatorial public finance program.
His cumulative receipts of public funds total $752,548.
Under the program, which began in 1974, candidates who raise $430,000 or more can qualify for public matching funds. Primary candidates are eligible for up to $4 million in public funds. In exchange, other than a few exceptions, they must limit their total primary spending to $6.4 million.
