MIDDLETOWN — Republican gubernatorial candidate Kim Guadagno Wednesday returned to a campaign theme of slamming “sanctuary cities and states” when asked about Tuesday’s terror attack in New York, though that issue does not apply to what happened.

I recently launched a website about my native town of Monmouth Beach and it just so happens that a resident of that great community is running for Governor of New Jersey, Kim Guadagno.
So I thought I’d offer some local perspective on a state concern. I’m backing Kim on November 7 and it’s an easy vote for me.
I’ve known Kim since she first ran for political office in Monmouth Beach back 12 years ago. As I’ve followed her career, I’ve learned that Kim already has to be exceptional just to survive.

The phony release attacked Guadagno’s campaign ad, “Sanctuary.”
Lt. Governor Kim Guadagno, the GOP nominee for New Jersey Governor, released a hard hitting television ad this afternoon attacking former Goldman Sachs banker Phil Murphy’s plan to follow California’s lead in becoming a sanctuary state and highlighting the Democrat candidate’s professed bias to “have the back” of New Jersey illegal immigrants who commit violent crimes against children.
