Senate poised to pass LG debate bill

The State Senate is scheduled to vote on legislation tomorrow that will require one official debate between the candidates for Lt. Governor. If the bill passes as expected, it will pit Jon Corzine's running mate against Christopher Christie's running mate in a debate that will likely be aired in October by NJN. The bill does increase the importance of independent gubernatorial candidate Christopher Daggett's selection of a running mate; if Daggett qualifies for public funds – he says he will — his LG candidate will also be in the debate.
