    New Jersey Race for Governor Wrap Up 

    Tune in to Caucus: New Jersey's "Democracy Works: NJ Race for Governor Roundtable Wrap Up" featuring WBGO Jazz 88.3's News Director, Doug Doyle. This half-hour program features members of the print, electronic, television and radio media analyzing the campaigns of New Jersey gubernatorial candidates Jon Corzine, Chris Christie and Chris Daggett. The panel is a “post mortem” if you will, about this highly publicized race discussing what lies ahead for the new governor and how he will deal with a legislature that isn’t his own party.
