2021 New Jersey Gubernatorial Election

Tuesday, Nov. 2 is election day in two states where voters will decide on their next governor.

In New Jersey, Democratic Gov. Phil Murphy, a progressive, has a comfortable lead over Republican challenger Jack Ciattarelli in the polls. It's Murphy's track record on the ballot, though, after four years of governing, two of which have been during the coronavirus pandemic. Ciattarelli, a former state Assemblyman who attended a "Stop the Steal" rally in New Jersey earlier this year, has distanced himself from former President Trump in the final stretch of the campaign.
