It's a tradition that goes back to 1969, the two gubernatorial candidates making their first joint appearance at the New Jersey Business and Industry Association's annual dinner one week after the primary.
Most of the candidates attempting to take the seat o the late U.S. Senator Frank Lautenberg are political veterans. Less known is Alieta Eck, a doctor from Piscataway who is seeking the Republican nomination.
