A super PAC spent $136,268.13 to aid Hudson County Executive hopeful Craig Guy in the final days before tomorrow’s Democratic primary election.
After being dormant for about two years, the Turnout Project paid $60,000 for Washington, D.C. based-Donahue Partners, Inc. for canvas operations on May 31st, according to their June 1st report filed with the New Jersey Election Law Enforcement Commission (NJ ELEC).
They also paid Round World Consulting, headquartered in Belmar, $69,735 for printing and postage for direct mail on June 1st.
Royal Printing, operating out of West New York, received $6,488.13 on the same date for doorhanger campaign literature.
A subsequent filing on June 2nd shows that the PAC received $90,000 from five groups: $20,000 from AFSCME, $50,000 from Garden State Forward – the New Jersey Education Association’s PAC, $5,000 from the NJ State Association of Pipe Trades PAC, $10,000 from the Northern NJ Ironworkers, and $5,000 from UA Plumbers Local 24.
Prior to that fundraising effort, the PAC was sitting on $50,856.
The treasurer of the PAC is identified as Chris Camacho, a resident of Bayonne. A phone number listed for him was disconnected on Monday.
Guy, the chief of staff to outgoing Hudson County Executive Tom DeGise, is heavily favored against progressive activist Eleana Little after receiving endorsements from top Democratic officials and labor groups throughout the state.
He also raised $1,007,659.13 this election cycle and spent $761,488.22, according to his May 26th ELEC report.
The polls will be open tomorrow between 6 a.m. and 8 p.m., with all nine Hudson County commissioner seats up for grabs (six are contested), as well as all nine state legislative seats (only two are contested).
