LIVE ANNOUNCEMENT TAKES PLACE ON THE “HURLEY IN THE MORNING” PROGRAM.

Hirsh Singh, who recently competed in the United States Senate for New Jersey, has just formally announced his candidacy for Governor of New Jersey.

Singh’s campaign announcement occurred live on-air on the “Hurley in the Morning” program on WPG Talk Radio 95.5 at 7:50 a.m. today.

Singh came very close to Rik Mehta in the immediate past United States Senate campaign for the Republican nomination.

Mehta went on to lose to United States Senator Cory Booker in the recent past November 3, 2020 General Election.

Singh joins a Republican field which already features former New Jersey Assemblyman Jack Ciatterelli and Doug Steinhardt, the Chairman of the New Jersey Republican Party.

Earlier this week, I incorrectly attributed an alleged adverse position taken by Ciatterelli regarding President Donald Trump that was factually inaccurate.

Ciatterelli supported President Trump’s re-election campaign in many ways, including the purchase of thousands of Trump - Pence signs to help promote his candidacy.

I will also correct this error, on-air tomorrow, Thursday, November 12, 2020 on the “Hurley in the Morning” program on WPG Talk Radio 95.5 FM.

Steinhardt has been supporting countless Republican candidates all over New Jersey for many years and has amassed significant good will with all 21 Counties throughout the state.

On the Democrat side, incumbent Governor Phil Murphy has announced his intentions to seek a second term.

Today, Governor Murphy is grappling with the realities of an anticipated second wave of COVID-19.

Shortly, The Governor will announce certain restrictions. He plans to use a “scalpel” and try a surgical approach, so as to limit the pain that will be felt by the citizens and various business and industries.

Something we may all be facing shortly is a curfew. By comparison, Connecticut presently has a 10:00 p.m. curfew (7 days a week) and the state of Vermont has a 9:00 p.m. curfew.

When Governor Murphy makes his specific plans known, I will report back here.
