State Sen. Dana Redd (D-Camden) says she has not been asked about running for Lt. Governor on Jon Corzine’s ticket, and intends to continue her bid for Mayor of Camden.  The first term legislator and Democratic State Vice Chair won the Democratic primary for Mayor in June.

"While I appreciate the kind thoughts about my political future, let me put any speculation to rest: I am running full speed ahead for Mayor in the great City of Camden. I have not been asked by anyone about running for the office of Lieutenant Governor of New Jersey, nor have I ever pursued this position,” Redd said in a statement released today. “I have made my commitment to the people of Camden crystal clear. Moving our City forward is my number one priority -- from breaking the cycle of dependence to better schools and safer neighborhoods.”

“I remain steadfast in my support of Governor Corzine and his re-election bid. This Governor has been a true friend to Camden and the entire South Jersey region and for that he has my unequivocal support. I look forward to working with him in his second term as Camden's next mayor,” said Redd.
