GOP candidates reject debate invitation

District 40's Republican candidates have decided not to participate in a debate sponsored by the League of Women Voters. In addition to scheduling conflicts, assembly incumbent Scott Rumana (R) cited a concern that Democratic candidate William Brennan might file suit over statements made in the debate. Brennan has been involved in six lawsuits with New Jersey municipalities. In reply, Brennan noted that none of the suits were defamation suits (the most probable kind of suit to come out of a debate).[11]
