STATE –Today is the last day to register to vote in the June 7 primary elections.
Legislative candidates have amassed more than $12 million in campaign reserves as the two major parties vie for control of the 120-seat Legislature for the first time in four years, according to the latest reports filed with the New Jersey Election Law Enforcement Commission.
Reports submitted 29 days before the June 7 primary show that Democrats, who control both legislative houses, have $8.2 million in reserve while Republicans have $4 million set aside. With few contested primaries, much of that funding is likely to be carried over into the fall general elections.
In the 20th Legislative District, which now includes Elizabeth, Hillside, Roselle and Union, there is a contested primary for the Democratic Party nominations. State Sen. Ray Lesniak, Asm. Joseph Cryan and Asw. Annette Quijano have spent more than $400,000 while their opponents have raised just $175, according to documents filed with ELEC.
