New Jerseyans for DeLay and Ney

Tom DeLay, the embattled former House Majority Leader, has raised $10,250 from New Jersey donors for his 2006 re-election campaign, including $2,000 from ex-Congressman James Courter and $1,000 from Lionel Kaplan, a prominent Democratic fundraiser from Princeton. Kaplan also contributed $1,000 to DeLay’s 2004 re-election bid. DeLay’s Democratic opponent, former Congressman Nick Lampson, has only one New Jersey donor: he received $500 from Edwin Oroway, a financial consultant from Franklin Lakes Three New Jerseyans have contributed to the ’06 re-election campaign of Bob Ney, the Republican Congressman from Ohio who is at the center of the Jack Abramoff lobbying scandal: Clare Hart, the Chief Executive Officer of Factiva, a Princeton-based Dow Jones company ($1,500), Matthew Hamel, the Factiva General Counsel ($1,500) and Wendy Whitaker, a mortgage banker from Lambertville ($500).
