Entertainer, radio host and maybe our next governor? Could Joe Piscopo be the next governor? If so, he has laid out his gameplan for his road to the statehouse.

Joe called into the show this morning to discuss his announcement that IF he decides to run for governor, he will run as an Independent. While he respects both sides of the aisle with friends in the NJ Republican and Democratic parties, "I think it's time for the people's politician, Bill," Piscopo stated.

Piscopo also said that if he were to announce that he is going to make a run for the governor, now that he won't be affiliated with any specific party, "I'm pro union member and you have to fight for the working men and women of the state and I support the union members."

Would you be more inclined to vote for an Independent candidate?
