New Jersey voters will choose Tuesday whether to reelect Democratic incumbent Gov. Phil Murphy or unseat him by electing Republican candidate Jack Ciattarelli.
If he wins, Murphy will become the first Democrat to be reelected governor in the Garden State since 1977.
Ciattarelli, a former accountant and businessman, has been involved in New Jersey state politics for decades and served in the New Jersey General Assembly from 2011 to 2018. He ran for New Jersey governor in 2017 and came in second place in the primary.
