TRENTON, N.J. - New Jersey residents will get their first glimpse of the Democrats and Republicans running to succeed Gov. Chris Christie going head-to-head this week.
The first of a pair of Democratic and Republican debates is set for Tuesday at Stockton University in Galloway.
Republicans, including Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno and Assemblyman Jack Ciattarelli, will square off first at 6:30 p.m. Democrats Phil Murphy, Jim Johnson, state Sen. Ray Lesniak and Assemblyman John Wisniewski are set to debate at 8 p.m. The events will be livestreamed on Facebook.
The contest has been churning along for months, but has largely gone under the radar for many in the state. A recent poll showed roughly half of voters surveyed don't know who they'll be backing.
The primary is June 6.
