GOP candidate Kim Guadagno to embark on statewide bus tour
SEA BRIGHT, N.J. (AP) — Republican gubernatorial candidate Kim Guadagno (gwah-DAH’-noh) will be hitting the road in a bus tour to visit all of New Jersey a week before the election.
The Asbury Park Press reports the lieutenant governor will be leaving Thursday on the tour to visit the state’s 21 counties through Election Day on Nov. 7. In 2013, Guadagno and Republican Gov. Chris Christie made more than 90 tour stops in the final seven days of the campaign.
She said Sunday during a roundtable in Sea Bright that she will talk to voters about lowering taxes and “not making New Jersey a sanctuary state.”
Polls show that Guadagno is trailing Democratic candidate Phil Murphy by double digits. Murphy said Sunday that electing Guadagno would be tantamount to a third term for Christie’s administration.
