Buono is seeking a 2-to-1 match for the funds that were submitted to ELEC earlier this week. It’s Buono’s third submission for matching funds for the general election.

Earlier this month, Buono was awarded $654,711 from ELEC. The state money brought her total raised to $1.3 million to date.

In contrast, incumbent Gov. Chris Christie has received more than $8 million from the state’s matching funds program to date. It’s currently seeking approval of about $56,000, which would draw $112,000 in matching funds and, if approved, max the campaign out of the $8.2 million in eligible matching funds.
