As the New Jersey gubernatorial race enters the final month of campaigning, GOP gubernatorial candidate Jack Ciattarelli says he will convince voters his message is the better one for the state on November 2nd.
Speaking on the 710 WOR Len Berman and Michael Riedel in the Morning program, Ciattarelli contends that polls suggesting Phil Murphy is running away with the vote are wrong. "We're starting to see a very desperate governor that knows this race is extremely tight and they're lying about me left and right. I'll take it as a compliment that our campaign is working."
Ciattarelli says the incumbent's stance on high taxes is turning off voters. "He's telling you to leave, and New Jerseyans don't appreciate it." He also mentioned "the kitchen table" to accentuate Murphy's image as a one-percenter who is out of touch with most Garden State residents and ignores their concerns. "The state we love is broken, but we don't want to be any other state, least of all California."
A Stockton University poll conducted in late September suggests Murphy's lead over Ciattarelli has shrunk to single digits, 50% vs 41%.
