State Sen. Dick Codey will not run for governor, sources said.
Two sources with knowledge of former Gov. Dick Codey’s intentions told PolitickerNJ the Essex County senator will not run for governor. Codey began informing high-ranking Democrats this morning.
Earlier this week Codey met with national labor leaders in Washington, D.C., and returned from the meeting with assurances that labor would back him if he chose to run.
