The New Jersey’s Governor’s race is hanging by a thread. And that thread is blue collar, where working class towns like Bloomfield, Bayonne, Wood-Ridge and Carteret are making it a real contest, and sending shivers up the spines of Democrats.
Republican Jack Ciattarelli is threatening incumbent Democratic Governor Phil Murphy on the machines tonight.
But it’s a shocker so far on the machines.
The Bergen County suburbs are watching the returns and seeing Ciattarelli keeping pace with or beating Murphy.
News reports say the race is a nail-biter to say the least.
Another wave ensued.
Hawthorne went Republican.
Bergen towns were leaning Ciattarelli.
In Parsippany, Republican Jamie Barberio turned out the Democratic incumbent.
