Unions give to Greenstein and restaurateurs to Goodwin

The 14th District campaigns of state Sen. Tom Goodwin (R-Hamilton) and Assemblywoman Linda Greenstein (D-Plainsboro) filed 48-hour reports with the state Election Law Enforcement Commission (ELEC) this week.

Earlier this month, Greenstein reported a closing balance of $116,550, which had dwindled down to $31,149 with 11 days to go before Election Day. This week, she reported cash infusions totaling $30,624 from union contributors; groups including the Communications Workers of America, International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, the Professional Firefighters of New Jersey PAC, and the Service Employees International Union.

She also received $4,079 from the Senate Democrats. On paper, she has a closing balance of $65,852 with six days left in the race.

Goodwin had a closing balance in early October of $57,400, which he bulked up to $137,948 with 11 days before Election Day. Now, his 48-hour report shows a $5,200 contribution from New Jersey Restaurateurs Good Government Fund, and two contributions from the Republican State Committee respectively totaling $11,871 and $10,712.

That leaves Goodwin a closing balance of $165,731 for the home stretch.
