I don't like the man, but Corzine will pull it out. With his money, the vast amounts of apathetic residents and psycho liberals, plus his friends at ACORN, he will manage to pull it out over Christie. But, the governor is just a man, not God, and it's the people that really have to change their ways for NJ to get back on track. The people are the ones that have to stand up, demand changes, and take some responsibility for sitting back and letting NJ get to this point. Even if Christie pulls it out and he somehow turns things around, you know people have a short memory and in a couple years will be ready to vote the next Corzine into office.

What bothers me most about Corzine isn't his stupidity, it's the way he's so two-faced and lies right to everyone without a care in the world. Ever see the man do an interview? He talks about fiscal responsibility, making tough choices in regards to eliminating costly social programs, battling the unions, lowering property taxes and business taxes, etc. You'd think Milton Friedman was the governor. Then look at his actions. The man is scum.

Chris Christie. Corzine is an abject failure. Lonegan is a wacko.

Corzine will win because too many nutcases vote Democrat regardless of Moral, Ethical or Value Character.

Christie. New Jerseyans will show that we're tired of being deceived and run into the ground by corrupt Democrats like the one currently serving as governor. They've had their chances, and now their reign is finally over.

Lonegan is a wacko? I disagree with that.

I would prefer Lonegan over Christie. He would definitly do more towards ending excessive taxes, and illegal immigration which i think are the two biggest issues in NJ. Plus i like that Lonegan will actually do something about the overly strict gun laws. I wouldnt mind Christie either tho.

Corzine needs to go. He has been a disaster

It's not just nutcases. There are so many people who vote democrat every single time no matter what. Especially in places like Newark and Paterson...

I agree about the illegal immigration, but Lonegan has himself admitted that his plan would raise taxes. I think that, along with his far-right stance on just about every social issue, would make it very difficult to beat Corzine. Chrisite has led Corzine in the polls so he clearly stands the best chance.

Christie would be another Whitman, i.e. he would not reduce taxes, but borrow (via bonds) to maintain funding of programs, and thus give the illusion of reducing gov't.

still nothing substantive from CC about his fiscal plans...

I think Christie will win, but I don't think he'll be significantly different than Corzine. Seems to me he's just another Whitman-style RINO. I'm pulling for Lonegan, personally. He's openly said he'll fight the Abbott decision and COAH which are the two biggest reasons NJ's property taxes are so expensive. Christie has never addressed doing anything about Abbott to my knowledge.

My fear is that, if Lonegan wins the primary, the impotent NJ Republican clubs will not support him or properly fund his campaign, a la Brett Schundler, and Corzine will win. Still, I'm voting for Lonegan in the primary. If there's ever a time he COULD win in this state, it's now.
