GOP HOUSE CANDIDATE:
TRENTON — The race to fill one of New Jersey’s open House seats this fall is capturing national attention as the pro-Donald Trump Republican loses some party support over social media posts and Democrats pour resources into flipping the seat. By Mike Catalini. SENT: About 640 words.
CAMDEN — It really should be hallowed ground, at least for music fans. New Jersey’s own Frank Sinatra signed a recording contract in the seventh-floor boardroom. So did Woody Guthrie. And some guy named Elvis Presley. The Philadelphia Orchestra’s earliest recordings were produced within its walls. But the building isn’t in New York or Los Angeles — it’s in Camden. And it’s undergoing a long-overdue renovation, with its owners hoping to restore most of the building to its early- and mid-20th century glory. By Phaedra Trethan, Courier Post. SENT: About 860 words.
AROUND THE STATE:
POLICE-SHOOTING DEATH — Authorities have released the name of a man shot and killed after a confrontation with police in New Jersey.
