New Jersey governor donated large sums to influential pastor
Corzine then received endorsement
Nov 17, 2009
A politically connected New Jersey pastor received almost $90,000 in donations last year from incumbent governor Jon Corzine, who is running for re election.
The pastor, Reginald Jackson, who recently announced that he was throwing his coveted support to Corzine, received $87,000 in donations from the multimillionaire governor last year, Jackson confirmed.
Head of the influential Black Ministers Council of New Jersey, Jackson is a key player in state politics. His endorsement—which has gone to both Democrats and Republicans over the years—is highly sought.
