The Republican nominee for governor in New Jersey, Jack Ciattarelli, is vowing to roll back school curricula that centers LGTBQ inclusivity, falsely claiming that “sexual orientation” is being taught to kindergarteners and sixth graders are learning “sodomy.”

Ciattarelli is a former Republican assemblyman who last month defeated two more conservative candidates in a GOP primary. He will face Democratic Governor Phil Murphy in November.
