EAST BRUNSWICK, NJ -  As of 9:20 pm on Tuesday, Kim Guadagno pulled a definitive lead to become the Republican candidate for Governor of New Jersey.  She will face businessman and Obama appointee Phil Murphy who fought an energetic and expensive fight against 5 other Democratic candidates to pull out the win for his party.  If elected, Guadagno will be the second female governor of the state.

Ambassador Phil Murphy had a solid win among East Brunswick Democratic voters tonight, earning 41% of the party's vote.  He was followed by long-time New Jersey Politico John Wisniewski with 28% and Jim Johnson with 22%.  Murphy will face Lieutenant Governor Guadagno who outpaced Jack Ciattarelli, 38% to 32% in the township.

Democrats Nancy J. Pinkin, currently a member of the Assembly and formerly a member of the East Brunswick Town Council, and Robert Karabinchak, who is filling the seat vacated by Patrick Diegnan, will face Republicans April Bengivenga and Lewis Glogower in the race for two seats in the New Jersey State Assembly for the 18th District.

Diegnan is in the race for State Senator of the 18th district.  He will run against Republican Mark Csizmar, a former Member of the East Brunswick Police Department who sought election to the Town Council last fall.
