Independent gubernatorial candidate Christopher Daggett has picked Dr. Frank Esposito, the interim dean at Kean University's College of Education, as his running mate. Esposito, a specialist in American Indian, Colonial, and recent American history, will announce his candidacy for Lt. Governor at a 2PM news conference.
In 2002 an 2003, Espositio served as Interim President of Kean University.
Since Daggett, a former state Environmental Protection Commissioner, has qualified for matching funds, Esposito will participate in the official debate with Democratic State Sen. Loretta Weinberg and Republican Monmouth County Sheriff Kim Guadagno.
