Montclair resident Mark Alexander, a law professor at Seton Hall University who spearheaded President Obama’s 2008 New Jersey primary campaign, and a candidate for the New Jersey State Senate 2013 race in the 34th Legislative District, will declare more than $70,000 in campaign donations in his first filing deadline with the New Jersey Election Law Enforcement Commission (ELEC). Since July 12, Alexander has received contributions from 120-plus supporters. Last month, he issued an appeal for a $34 donation from everyone in the 34th district.

A breakdown of the ELEC filing report includes: 124 individual donors, over $17,000 raised in small dollar online donations, average online donation of approximately $200, no donations from Political Action Committees.

“This is just the first step towards bringing a more responsive and effective State Senator to the 34th District,” said Alexander. “I am confident that my campaign is going to have every resource it needs to win in June and in the general election. We need fresh faces that can energize voters in 2013 and help us elect Democrats statewide and defeat Governor Christie.”

Rarely have I been so thankful for the presence of a comma in the headline...
