OUR TAKE ON THE NEWS IN NEW JERSEY
 
NEWARK - The stars keep coming. Phil Murphy is calling in plenty of favors as a leading Democratic fundraiser, as all the stars of the Democratic Party are steadily streaming into New Jersey to stump for him as governor. There was Joe Biden. There was Al Gore. And now, TAPInto Newark reports, that Barack Obama will be at the Robert Treat Hotel on Thursday afternoon. It is invitation-only, of course, so please bring your wallet. Next up: Hillary Clinton on Sunday in Harrison.

MONTCLAIR - As many voters have no clue who is running for governor, you can bet it may be difficult for NJTV to gather a wide viewership tonight's debate of candidates for lieutenant governor. But since Monday Night Football doesn't include the Giants or Jets, then, sure, we will be tuning in at 8 p.m. as Phil Murphy's Number Two - Assemblywoman Sheila Oliver - goes up against Kim Guadagno's running mate, Woodcliff Lake Mayor Carlos Rendo.

Now, with a 26-year payout, he will never need to check lottery tickets again.

STATEWIDE - So, in which state do people spend the most on Halloween candy? Bet we were going to say New Jersey, but no.  The national average in per-person spending is $16.45. Yet, in Oregon, shoppers pay a whopping $40.29, on average, on their Halloween candy, reports Ibotta. New Jersey ranked third on the national list, where we plunk down an average of $24.36 on candy purchases the week before Halloween, thus ensuring plenty to snack on until Santa arrives with his candy canes. Which state is the stingiest? Ohio, which spends the absolute least, and is obviously not the strategic state to go Trick or Treating in.
