WASHINGTON -- Almost a year after Gov. Chris Christie ended his presidential campaign following a dismal showing in New Hampshire, his committee continued to operate, spending $21,323 during the first three months of 2017.
Federal Election Commission filings show that the biggest expenditure, $20,000, went to Gibbons PC, the law firm where long-time adviser Bill Palatucci served as special counsel.
That helped whittle down the committee's campaign debt to $150,505 at the end of March, compared with $170,505 at the end of December.
While the campaign debt remained on the books in the latest FEC report, the campaign committee settled with all of its other vendors, according to campaign treasurer Ron Gravino. The committee was waiting for FEC approval of its plan, Gravino said earlier this year.
