Christie Soliciting Funds for Bell

By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog

Jeff BellThe NJ GOP is certainly stepping up its online fundraising efforts in 2014, Save Jerseyans.

After using its formidable online list serve to raise money for Wisconsin’s Scott Walker last week, this Thursday, the Sate Republican Committee shared an e-mail signed by Governor Christie asking donors to donate directly to Jeff Bell’s U.S. Senate campaign and, having done so, “reject the failed agenda of Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi.” The e-mail blast further noted how recent polling suggests a single-digit race.

More help might be coming soon for the GOP nominee taking on Cory Booker (D-Twitter) in November. Governor Christie’s long-time confidante and national Republican emissary Bill Palatucci recently promised a Christie-headlined fundraiser for Bell.

The NJ GOP’s blast e-mail is below the fold:

Matt,

In just 76 days a number of important elections will be taking place across the country. And with your help, I believe Republicans can regain control of the Senate this November. It’s time we had a United States Senate willing to stand up for the American people and reject the failed agenda of Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi.

Here in New Jersey, we have an opportunity to do our part to take back that majority by electing Jeff Bell to the United States Senate. Jeff is a conservative, pro-growth Republican who has dedicated his career to advancing responsible fiscal policies and promoting our conservative values.

Recent polling continues to show that Jeff Bell is gaining the momentum in this race – a poll released earlier this month showed Jeff to be within single digits in this race.

But Jeff still faces an opponent who is well-known and well-funded by Washington special interests. That is why I’m asking you to join me today in supporting Jeff by giving $250, $100, $50 or just $25 to help spread his message across the state.

The polls are tightening and it’s time to show, once again, that a conservative Republican can win here in New Jersey – by putting people, not Washington special interests, first.

Thank you for joining me to support Jeff Bell for United States Senate,

Governor Chris Christie

  5. We can’t Let the failed mayor of Newark, Cory Booker, represent NJ in the Senate. Give Jeff Bell a chance. Booker still has to answer for Newarkgate scandal

  6. It would be nice if the NJGOP supported the Republican nominee for US Senate.
