Campaign finance reports released Wednesday show the candidates for governor in New Jersey took contrasting approaches just before and after the June 2 primary. Republican nominee Chris Christie spent $2.1 million between May 20 and June 19 , most of it before the primary. During that period, he raised only $13,000. Overall, his primary run cost $5.2 million. Democratic incumbent Jon Corzine spent $1.5 million, including his first round of post-primary TV ads. Perhaps more noteworthy was that he raised $1.4 million, including a fundraiser that featured a performance by Jon Bon Jovi. By midday Wednesday, Republican primary challenger Steve Lonegan had not submitted a required report to the state Election Law Enforcement Commission. AP.
