Buono submits $69K for matching funds

Democratic gubernatorial candidate Barbara Buono submitted $69,540 in donations for state matching funds yesterday, according to the state Election Law Enforcement Commission.

The submission brings her total amount raised for the primary election to $624,052, according to ELEC and she has received matches on about $515,000.  She has already received about $787,000 in state matching funds, bringing her total haul to just over $1.4 million. Should all of the donations in the latest submission be approved by ELEC, she will receive another $138,000.

Buono needs another $1.4 million in donations before June to qualify for the full primary match.
