Gov. Chris Christie is scheduled to speak tonight at a Reform Jersey Now fundraiser. The event is for a “small number of people” RJN’ers said, and will be held in New Jersey.
Reports that the price of admission is $25,000 are unfounded, according to someone familiar with the event. There is no set price per plate and attendees can donate whatever amount they like.
To date, the issue group, which lists three former Republican governors as part of its advisory board, has funded several radio and print ads supporting the governor’s plan for a cap on property tax increses.
The group has been a lightning rod for Democrats who have called for disclosure of the group’s donor list. So far, spokesman Mike Duhaime has said the list will be released sometime before the end of the year. as a 501 (c) (4) Reform Jersey Now is not required under state campaign finance rules to disclose its contributors.
