With the primary over, the race for New Jersey governor has begun in earnest.
In addition to Democrat Phil Murphy, the former Goldman Sachs executive, and Republican Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno, five other candidates will be on the ballot, and at least a couple of them have made headlines. Rev. Seth Kaper-Dale of the Green Party has been very involved in refugee resettlement and trying to prevent immigrant deportations. Gina Genovese, running on the slogan “Reduce Property Taxes,” is the former mayor of Long Hill and founder and former head of the group Courage to Connect that is working for municipal consolidation. Also on the ballot are Matthew Riccardi of the Constitution Party, Libertarian Peter Rohrman and Vincent Ross running under the banner “We the People.”
