The race for Attorney General

Two leading candidates — though clearly not the only ones — to become Jon Corzine’s Attorney General: Zulima Farber, the former state Public Advocate who almost became a state Supreme Court Justice in 2003, and Robert Del Tufo, a former United States Attorney who spent four years as Attorney General when Jim Florio was Governor. Both Farber and Del Tufo are close to the Governor-elect. Another possible Attorney General candidate, according to an insider, is State Senator Nia Gill. The embattled incumbent, Peter Harvey, has been seeking private sector employment, with a rumored annual salary range of $700,000.
