A high schoolof the New Jersey Governor’s race resulted in a win for the Socialist Party:
Socialist Party candidate Tino Rozzo, at 21.6 percent, narrowly edged Corzine and three other contenders in a survey of 270 freshmen, sophomores, juniors and seniors last week.
Rozzo, whose platform includes a $12-per-hour minimum wage and a “socialized healthcare system under workers and community control,” would seem an unlikely favorite at a high school in relatively wealthy, Republican-dominated Morris County.
Still, he had some proud backers among students attending today’s 1 p.m. debate in the high school’s auditorium, with students standing in for five of the candidates running for governor.
“I believe we need to get rid of these capitalist ways,” said Steven Honickel, 14.
Public education at it’s best.
