Independent gubernatorial candidate Chris Daggett went into Gov. Jon Corzine’s base country of Princeton yesterday on an ongoingcampaign trail swing that includes a number of Revolutionary War sites, from Morristown, to Bordentown.
The message – in this case delivered on the outskirts of Nassau Hall,which Hamilton shelled at the Battle of Princeton- is he wantsvoters to declare their independence from the two-party system and back him for governor.
A question markhovering overDaggett’s candidacyis whether he can raise $340,000 to qualify for state matching funds. He will probably answer that question at an 11 a.m. Statehouse press conference tomorrow.
The campaign remains inhush mode concerning the subject of the presser, but in recent weeks the candidate has been focused almost entirelyon raising the necessary funds to qualify for additonal dollars and the guess is Daggett means to announce Tuesday that he has raised the requisite moneyto qualify for matching funds.
The candidate himself last month told PolitickerNJ.com that he was almost at the $340,000 mark.
