I am ceasing my candidacy for governor of New Jersey in 2013 today. This is my last posting here.

The reasons are varied and range from personal to a cold analysis of the conditions and possibilities in New Jersey. The U.S. Court posture in dismissing Andrea Dealmagro vs NJELEC has weighed in this decision.

Withdrawing from social media which I had joined for this enterprise will follow.

To all my friends, supporters, and sympathizers: Many thanks.
