TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — A nonpartisan environmental group is making its presence felt in New Jersey’s legislative elections.
The New Jersey League of Conservation Voters is helping four candidates seeking election this fall.
The League’s political action committee is spending $40,000 on mailers on behalf of Kip Bateman, the 16th District Republican who tops the group’s scorecard in the state Senate.
The first of five mailers could be delivered to voters as early as Friday.
The league’s also funding field organizers to mobilize volunteers in the campaign offices of Sen. Linda Greenstein and Assemblyman Dan Benson, who are running in District 14, and Assemblyman Peter Barnes III, who is running for Senate in District 18.
Executive Director Ed Potosnak says the league wants to show support for lawmakers who support the environment.
