Gooch has given $235,525 to GOP candidates

Diane Gooch, the newspaper publisher and philanthropist mulling a challenge to U.S. Rep. Frank Pallone (D-Long Branch), appears to have solid Republican credentials when it comes to campaign contributions: she has personally contributed $235,525 to GOP candidates over the past decade, and zero to Democrats.  Her husband, GFI Chairman Mickey Gooch, was Rudy Giuliani’s New Jersey Finance Chairman, has given $224,700 to Republicans and $23,000 to Democrats, including $6,400 to Pallone.
