New Jersey officials had said the new state slogan – “Come See for Yourself” – would highlight the Garden State’s true beauty.
But it turns out that at least one other state already had the same idea.
State tourism officials say they have canned the slogan because some states, including West Virginia, have used it in the past.
Former Governor Codey unveiled the slogan with great fanfare at a January news conference, just days before he left office.
The slogan was the top choice among 11,227 telephone and online votes cast by residents for five final entrees in a statewide contest.
