Hoboken Housing Authority Chair Dana Wefer won’t run for governor after all.
The Democrat turned Republican said she is having too tough a time raising money for a statewide campaign.
John Heinis of The Hudson View has the story here.
“As you know, I officially announced my intention to run for governor 2 weeks ago. Last week, I was supposed to start fundraising. Unfortunately, after much contemplation, I just can’t bring myself to ask people for money for this race,” Wefer said. “The likelihood of success is too small and even getting on the ballot is questionable at this point. The loftiness of launching a gubernatorial race on just a few months notice with no money has collided with reality, which requires a change in tactics.”
