Voters start on picking candidates to replace Chris Christie

Parmenio Sano | 08 Giugno, 2017, 13:56

New Jersey and Virginia are the only two states with governor's races.

She's served as Christie's lieutenant governor - the first in state history - since winning election in 2009.

John Parilla, 75, an immigration lawyer from Alpine, voted for Republican front-runner Lt. Gov Guadagno and said he likes the range of experience she brings to the job.

Six Democrats and five Republicans are on the ballot Tuesday to succeed Christie, who is term-limited and is set to leave office in January.

At a speech earlier this year in Montclair, near Paterson, Murphy said he "lived in Germany twice".

Like the Democrats, GOP voters were also split - some along ideological lines and some who felt Guadagno's candidacy could be negatively affected by her ties to Gov. Chris Christie, whose poll numbers are at record lows.

Republican Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno (gwah-DAH'-noh) chuckled as she was photographed emerging from the voting booth in Monmouth Beach on Tuesday.

There were contests in eight state Senate and 15 Assembly races overall. They compared him to members of Trump's administration who also worked there and former Democratic Gov. Jon Corzine, another Goldman Sachs alumnus who, like Murphy, donated to local Democratic parties. "They care about the cost of college", said Brigid Harrison, a political science professor at Montclair State University.

Democrats are favored in the general election, in part because of an 800,000-voter registration advantage and because of political headwinds stemming from Christie's and Trump's unpopularity.

"We will stand up to this president with a steel backbone", Murphy said.

Chris Christie said Tuesday that President Donald Trump's use of Twitter sometimes "hasn't been for his best interest". Northam is a more traditional candidate, who stresses his pragmatic approach. The credit ratings for New Jersey's general-obligation bonds have been downgraded 11 times by three different firms during Gov. Chris Christie's tenure. He was followed by long-time New Jersey Politico John Wisniewski with 28% and Jim Johnson with 22%.

"I'm just not very excited about how he pulled out of the (international) environmental accord", she said. "My principles are Main Street principles".

Christie told reporters Tuesday that he cast his vote in the primary for Guadagno, and her supporters say they are prepared for the next stage of the race. He has said he would campaign if asked, but it's unclear whether his assistance would help or hurt, since about three-quarters of voters disapprove of his job performance.

Christie and Guadagno's relationship has always been thought to be tense and has come up in the federal trial of two former aides to the governor who are charged with closing lanes to the George Washington Bridge as part of a political retribution scheme.
