NJ GOP Gubernatorial Candidate Bill Spadea Keeps Radio Show.

After a hearing last week, the Election Law Enforcement Commission in New Jersey determined that Bill Spadea’s radio program on Townsquare Media talk station “New Jersey 101.5” WKXW Trenton did not constitute an improper campaign contribution as an in-kind service.

The Commission opted not to take action and stated it will await a public complaint before proceeding further.

According to a report by NJ Spotlight News, Spadea knows he has an advantage by keeping his daily radio show, says Sen. Jon Bramnick (R-Union), who’s also running for the Republican gubernatorial nomination. “For four hours he discusses issues around the state, some of them are very political, some are generally his opinion on things, and he’s running for governor,” Bramnick said.

For now, the report says, Spadea will keep his show, which recently featured an interview with former President Donald Trump, who took some shots at another GOP gubernatorial primary candidate, Jack Ciattarelli.

Ciattarelli’s campaign said it plans to see if anyone files a complaint. But in a letter to commissioners, Ciattarelli said it wasn’t credible to “suggest that allowing Spadea to be on the radio for four hours per day… is not providing his candidacy with a ‘thing of value’ or ‘contribution.’”
