Here are the special interests that have bankrolled Robert Menendez’s campaigns
Posted October 14, 2018 at 08:30 AM | By Jonathan D. Salant | NJ Advance Media for NJ.com
U.S. Sen. Robert Menendez first ran for the U.S. House in 1992 and has been raising money for his campaigns ever since.
He has brought in more than $50 million during that time, according to the Center for Responsive Politics, a Washington research group. The numbers will grow after Menendez, D-N.J., files his latest campaign finance disclosure report on Monday.
Much of Menendez’s donations come from employees and political action committees representing the industries he oversees in the Senate. All of his 10 biggest sources of campaign cash are directly affected (or represent clients that are) by one of the committees Menendez sits on: Banking, Finance or Foreign Relations.
“Bob Menendez’s record of fighting for the middle class, standing up to Donald Trump and against special interests is unparalleled, and he is appreciative of the broad support he gets,” campaign spokesman Steven Sandberg said.

Menendez is being outspent for the first time as his Republican opponent, former Celgene Corp. executive Bob Hugin, who has pumped more than $15 million into his own campaign.
Hugin has tried to deflect Menendez’s attacks on his record at Celgene, where the company lobbied to prevent a generic alternative to its profitable Revlimid cancer drug and paid a $280 million fine to settle a Medicare fraud case, by highlighting the senator’s financial support from the pharmaceutical industry, much of which is headquartered in New Jersey.
But the amount of money Menendez received from drug company employees is far less than his financial support from several other industries and interest groups.
