Self-Funder No More?

New Jersey’s Gov. Corzine is in an unusual position in his reelection race, according to The Times.  Unlike his previous campaigns, this time he is soliciting significant contributions to support his campaign.

Mr. Corzine, 62, famously spent $60 million of his own money on a record-shattering Senate race in 2000, then $43 million more laying siege to Trenton four years ago.

But now, after a costly divorce and a steep decline in his net worth, Mr. Corzine, the onetime chief executive of Goldman Sachs, is in the unfamiliar position of seeking donations to help foot the bill for his campaign.
