Candidates in N.J. governor’s race disclose sources of income

Democrats and Republicans running to replace New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie are reporting income from across a spectrum of sources, from state positions to investment returns.

The New Jersey Election Law Enforcement Commission published disclosure forms Monday. Candidates must report sources of income but not the amount of their assets. The primary is June 6.

Democratic candidate Jim Johnson disclosed income from roughly two dozen investments. Democratic State Sen. Ray Lesniak reported earnings from two rental properties. Democratic Assemblyman John Wisniewski showed income from his law firm.

Republican Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno disclosed earnings from her public salary, and Republican Assemblyman Jack Ciattarelli reported income from a publishing firm he runs.
