The running-mate of Independent New Jersey Gubernatorial candidate Chris Daggett debated the other two “major party” Lt. Governor candidates.
The reviews were rather even, but writers did mention Independent Lt. Gubernatorial candidate Frank Esposito got a few one-liners in the debate.
The Associated Press’ Angela Delli Santi in Philly.com wrote, “Esposito, a college dean, marveled at the negative campaign, pointing a finger at both parties. ‘New Jerseyans are sick of this partisan game,’ he said as the audience cheered.”
Derek Harper on PressOfAtlanticCity.com highlighted Esposito saying, "This campaign, between the two major parties, has focused on all kinds of distractions, and that's wrong. We have serious problems. We have serious business to deal with in New Jersey."
The Gubernatorial candidates were all in the audience.
