Endorsement of independent candidate could have violated state rules…

Endorsement of independent Gubernatorial candidate Chris Daggett could have violated state rules according to an article by Wally Edge on

At question is the endorsement by the Star-Ledger newspaper. Edge writes, “…state regulations… prohibit debate sponsors from endorsing candidates before the completion of the debate.” The problem arise because the Star-Ledger is one of many sponsors of the up-coming Gubernatorial debate on October 16 at William Paterson University.

So what happens if this is a violation? We’re not sure.

  1. But suppose they have a debate right before the election? I think the Ledger is on solid ground because a debate already took place.
