A super PAC supporting the presidential candidacy of New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said Tuesday it has raised $11 million since its launch in February and is launching a million-dollar ad campaign in New Hampshire starting July 20.
The group, America Leads, has also reserved $2.8 million in air time from Nov. 16 to Feb. 9 in New Hampshire, a state that will be vital to Mr. Christie’s presidential aspirations.
Phil Cox, director of the group, said they set a goal of raising $15 million to $20 million by the end of the calendar year and are now “well on our way to hitting and exceeding that benchmark.
“We have been judicious with our resources, spending only 3 percent of the money raised, which gives us the ability to begin communicating Governor Christie’s message to voters across the country,” Mr. Cox said.
The initial television and digital buy will total $1.1 million, and the group is placing its first TV buy beginning July 20 in the Manchester and Boston markets.
