Why it Might Pay to Back the Republican Party in NJ

Why it Might Pay to Back the Republican Party in NJ

Lately, it seems as though it pays to back the Republican Party in New Jersey.

An investigation by The Guardian revealed that some of the firms receiving top public funding also donated millions to the Republican Governors Association, which is led by Gov. Chris Christie and other GOP campaigns.

This amounted to grants worth up to 1.25 billion in the past two years, a time in which Christie had appointed a close supporter to head the state’s program “bank for business.” In an analysis of the 30 biggest subsidies granted to corporations by The Guardian, 21 of the firms listed had contributed considerably to Republican causes.

According to The Guardian, Senator Loretta Weinberg, who is the co-chair of the New Jersey legislature’s select committee on investigation, said, “It seems pretty obvious to me that we don’t have enough safeguards in place to make sure these awards are not going out based upon favouritism.”
