Kyrillos Raises $1.3 M in Second Quarter

Joe Kyrillos is the change we need in Washington. Senator Kyrillos lives in Middletown with his wife Susan, and two children, Max, and Georgia.

Middletown – July 12… Today, New Jersey State Senator Joe Kyrillos’ campaign for U.S. Senate against Bob Menendez made public the results of its 2nd Quarter filing with the Federal Election Commission.

Putting Senator Kyrillos’ fundraising among the ranks of top tier incumbents and challengers alike for U.S. Senate seats around the country, the campaign revealed that it has raised over $3.1 million to date, including $1.3 million from April 1st - June 30th (2nd Quarter). The campaign reported approximately $2 million cash on hand.

"Bob Menendez has raised millions of dollars from special interests," said Kyrillos Campaign Manager Chapin Fay. "Oil companies, banks and Wall Street are all kicking in big bucks. And like Jon Corzine did in 2009, Menendez will have more money in this race. But no amount of money can explain away Bob Menendez's failed record on jobs and the economy. We are right on pace for Joe Kyrillos to have the resources necessary to get out his job growth message.”

Another lie by this guy: http://www.politifact.com/new-jersey/statements/2012/jul/15/joseph-kyrillos/joe-kyrillos-claims-united-states-not-producing-jo/ The Party of No nominated Joe, and millionaires donate dough. The 99% and common sense will prevail.

Chilly, sometimes I agree with you but this is not one of them. Your claim that those who oppose granting rights to illegals are racist is totally out of line and real 2008. You are using the same twisted logic Obama supporters claimed of people who did not support him. Using your logic, do you oppose granting rights to illegals that are white? You know some of my distant ancestors came from Ireland and Denmark but what does that matter? I am a natural American, like my parents, and grandparents. Do not consider me an immigrant; this is not a nation of immigrants. I was born in America and so were my parents and grandparents. Only two of my great-grandparents were immigrants. I also support progress. I see that as a United States that stops trying to save and police the world and instead helps her own people. Why should illegals get food stamps when needy Americans are receiving less assistance or none at all? The illegals should receive assistance from their governments so more Americans can receive assistance from theirs.

A total waste of money. Campaign funds are donated, but as the saying goes, nothing is free, and those who donate expect favors in return, from jobs to contracts to passing laws. From the President, to the Governors, right on down to our locals. It's crazy, but it's the only way for a politician to rise to the top these days. Strict Campaign contributions laws need to be passed. All contributions should go into one fund and be divided equally between all registered candidates. As far as illegal immigrants, I agree with Ric 100% on every single word he posted on that topic. We must fix ourselves before we can help others.
