New Jerseyans elect a governor this November, and the first debate for the candidates vying to replace Gov. Chris Christie is Tuesday evening. You can stream the debates here, starting at 6:30 p.m:

Stockton University is hosting two back-to-back debates with the Democratic and Republican candidates who have raised enough money to qualify for state matching funds. For the Democratic primary, that includes Jim Johnson, a former prosecutor and U.S. Treasury Department official; Ray Lesniak, a Union County state senator, Phil Murphy, a former ambassador to Germany and Goldman Sachs executive; and John Wisniewski, a state assemblyman who led the Bridgegate investigation. 

On the Republican side, two candidates qualified to be on the stage: Lt. Governor Kim Guadagno and Jack Ciattarelli, a state assemblyman who was little known across the state but has mounted a substantial challenge to Guadagno.  

The last poll found 57 percent of New Jersey voters don't know enough about the candidates to form an opinion. The primary is June 6. 

The Brian Lehrer Show is interviewing the candidates over the next few weeks. Listen to John Wisniewski here and Jim Johnson here
