Though PolitickerNJ reported earlier that Republicans were hoping for a hearing as early as today, the source says that the file will likely remain pending until early next week due to Caposela being out of the office, making a hearing this week improbable.
The motion was filed in the hopes of replacing Anthony Cappola—who dropped out as the Republican assembly candidate in LD38 after bigoted remarks in a self-published book surfaced—on the ballot for November 3.
The case—Passaic County Regular Republican Organization v. Kim Guadagno—was filed yesterday. The Bergen County Republican Organization co-filed with Passaic. Robert Giles, the Director of the N.J. Division of Elections, is also listed as a defendant in the case.
