MILLVILLE, N.J. -

A South Jersey Republican has thrown his hat into the ring for the chance to become New Jersey's next governor.

Atlantic County native Hirsh Singh is running with the campaign slogan "It's Time to Innovate." Singh stopped by SNJ Today studios to tape an episode of SNJ Today's Hotline with host Jim Quinn on Wednesday, March 22nd.

The 31-year-old says that he sees his youth and experience as an engineer as keys to his success.

"Our issues in New Jersey are not a single point of failure," said Singh. "We have a lot of issues that go across the legislature that need to be consolidated so that you get with me is a younger candidate who will actually grow the party and could allow for a focus to be made to make sure that we have a plurality across the state so then we can actually get things done."

In the June 6th Republican Primary, Singh will be running against Lieutenant Governor Kim Guadagno, Jack Ciattarelli, and Joseph Rullo.
