The deadline for Independent candidates to file petitions is 4PM tomorrow. In the race for Governor, so far only former state Environmental Protection Commissioner Christopher Daggett and Trenton resident Kostas Petris have filed nominating petitions. Two other announced candidates, Libertarian Kenneth Kaplan and Rev. Shannon Wright, an African American minister who began the cycle managing Brian Levine's campaign for the GOP gubernatorial nomination, have not yet filed.
Wright is holding a news conference tomorrow, presumably to announce her filing. Her advisory says that "invited guests" to her event include: Rev. Al Sharpton, Newark Mayor Cory Booker (she spelled that name incorrectly), Plainfield Mayor Sharon Robinson Briggs, Hackensack Mayor Michael Melfi, Alpine Mayor Paul Tomasko, and Levine. Don't expect any of them to show.
