UPDATE: Apparently Dick Codey’s office sent out a missive confirming he’s not running.
Well, PolitickerNJ is reporting that the field has cleared a bit for Barbara Buono as their sources say Dick Codey will not be running. Codey was governor after Jim McGreevey resigned, and declined to run for election after Jon Corzine flooded the field with cash.
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.
PNJ also says that Steve Sweeney is still considering running, but other than that it looks like smooth sailing for Senator Buono.
