Reality TV star Randal Pinkett will hold a news conference tomorrow to make "an official statement regarding the speculative reports on the lieutenant governor position." It is expected that the business executive and Rhodes Scholar, the winner of Donald Trump's Apprentice competition, will announce that he will not be a candidate for public office this year. If Pinkett was Gov. Jon Corzine's pick, he would not be addressing the media on his own.
Democratic sources say that Pinkett was Corzine's first choice before key party leaders strongly opposed the idea.
