Money woes deepen for Buono gubernatorial campaign

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - The New Jersey governor's race is playing out like a tale of the haves and have nots.

Republican Gov. Chris Christie has raised the maximum $4.22 million the state will match $2-for-$1 under its public financing law.

His Democratic opponent, state Sen. Barbara Buono, faces another delay in receiving her first check.

She has made two submissions to the Election Law Enforcement Commission since winning the June primary.

But it recently resubmitted $265,000 worth of contributions to correct errors.

The Buono campaign says two-thirds of the senator's donations have been online, which are harder to verify because a signature is required, just like on personal checks.

The election is Nov. 5.
