Third graders do their work behind see-though partitions at a school in Jersey City, N. But in the heat of the gubernatorial campaign, a casual observer might believe there is. Diane Allen, and their allies — have keyed in on some social issues to portray the policies of Democratic Gov. Phil Murphy, an unabashed progressive, as out of step with mainstream voters.
Ciattarelli, a former member of the General Assembly who built a reputation as a moderate but has taken a rightward turn during the gubernatorial campaign, is facing an uphill battle to unseat Murphy in deep-blue New Jersey.

Pennacchio said in an interview this week that the point of the amendment was to protest how the bill was so open-ended, and that it had initially only applied to sixth grade and up but was amended to apply to all students.
