Incumbent Democratic Governor Jon Corzine is kicking off his campaign tonight, and he’s decided that he will ignore whoever wins the Republican primary tonight and pretend that he’s running against former President Bush.
“My opponents won’t tell you who they’re going to cut — they’ll have to check with George W. Bush on that! …I won’t entrust our state’s future to the same people who gave us George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, John Ashcroft, skyrocketing unemployment, a housing crisis and the war in Iraq! New Jersey cannot afford to get Bushwhacked again!”
UPDATE: I’ll have a wrap-up when it’s called, but Christie leads Lonegan, 56 percent to 41 percent, with 36 percent of districts reporting.
