The New Jersey gubernatorial election of 2005 is a race for the Governor of New Jersey. It will be held on November 8, 2005. Incumbent Democratic Acting Governor Richard Codey, who replaced Governor Jim McGreevey in 2004 after his resignation, has announced he will not run, despite having decent support. (Some have speculated it was because of lack of campaign funds.)

The primary election was held on June 7, 2005. Jon Corzine, as expected, won the Democratic nomination with no serious opposition. Doug Forrester received the Republican nomination with a plurality of 36%; in second place was Bret Schundler, who received 31%.
