How does a Republican win in Blue State like New Jersey.
Well, first it's an off year. Second as Governor he moved the special election for Senator to replace the late Senator Lautnenburg to a week before, so that way the charismatic Mayor of Newark, Cory Booker leaves no coat tails for other Democrats to hang on to. Only 2,053,933 votes were cast, meaning only about 40% or so of the state showed up to vote. Makes a person wonder what may have happened if the 24% from the Senatorial election would have made a difference in the Governors race. Maybe or maybe not, we'll leave that up to a statistic major.
One thing that hasn't changed is the legislature in Trenton, it still held by Democrats.
So, how is it that Governor Christi won, oh yeah showing up where he isn't wanted and working with legislature.
Oh but wait, this Governor who likes to pick a fight with a public school teacher in the middle of the beach. And then tell the teacher, now is not the place.....
So, for other Republicans hoping to duplicate the magic.
