Amount contributed by environmental groups to Phil Murphy’s campaign

The New Jersey League of Conservation Voters’ Victory Fund — the state’s only environmental super PAC — and the New Jersey League of Conservation Voters’ PAC contributed a record-breaking $401,000 to the gubernatorial campaign of Democrat Phil Murphy. This is the most money invested in New Jersey elections on behalf of the environment, noted the LCV. (Some of the funds also went to “other environmental champions,” according to the league.)

According to a memo from the league, “electing Murphy would reposition New Jersey as a national environmental leader.”
