Booker to host Buono fundraiser

Newark Mayor Cory Booker, who has been on a furious fundraising schedule for his 2014 Senate bid, will take time out from his own money-raising efforts to headline an event with gubernatorial hopeful Barbara Buono.

The May 10 event is scheduled for the Montclair home of Tracy Higgins and James Leitner, according to an invitation obtained by PolitickerNJ.

The event has four levels of support starting at the $500 “Friend” level and ending at the $3,800 “Host” level.

To get in a photo line with the pair, donors must contribute $3,800 or raise $15,200.

To date, Buono has raised just over $624,000 and has been awarded more than $787,000 as part of the state’s matching funds program.  She needs a total of $2 million raised in order to qualify for the full state primary match.
