Romney sends some green to N.J.

Former Massachusetts Gov. and 2008 Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney, who may be gearing up for a 2012 presidential run, has  sent money to state Republicans.

 In a statement issued Monday, Romney said his political action committee, Free and Strong America PAC, donated $25,000 to the New Jersey Republican Party to help in it various legislative races.

“It is important to help candidates who are fighting for conservative principles whether in Washington or in the states,” Romney said. “I am happy to support the New Jersey GOP as its leaders fight to cut spending and stand up for the taxpayer.”

Prior to his latest donation, Romney had already donated some $300,000 to various other groups, including Republican members of Congress and Senate.

“We appreciate Governor Romney’s donation to help Governor Christie  and the New Jersey Republican Party in such an important election year,” said Rick Gorka, NJGOP communications director, in an emailed statement.
