ELEC: Passaic County Dems have most COH among party county committees, followed by Somerset GOP; Burlington GOP has highest net worth

County party officials are gradually rebuilding their financial reserves in a year with no state campaigns but with most counties hosting elections for at least some positions, according to the latest reports filed with the Election Law Enforcement Commission (ELEC).

Quarterly reports filed by county parties showed their combined reserves grew from $1.3 million to $1.5 million since March. Those reserves are smaller than the $1.6 million raised during the same period last year, when there was a governor’s race and all 120 legislators were running. However, the combined war chest is larger than the $1 million amassed in 2012, another year with no major state campaigns.

Candidate reports indicate there are county executive elections in Essex and Bergen counties this year, as well as elections for freeholder, sheriff, clerk and surrogate posts in several counties.

“For the second quarter in a row, it looks like county party fundraising may have hit bottom in 2012,” said Jeff Brindle, ELEC’s Executive Director. “County party fund-raising is sort of like the national economy. It is not going gang-busters. But it appears to be slowly on the upswing.”
