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