Jason Shih, Jon Corzine, Ecstasy, and Middlesex County Democratic Committee paychecks.
(Via Libertarian Republican, who also has a mug shot) Remember: the Corzine campaign has no idea who this Jason Shih is. The quote is “…the campaign doesn’t know who he is.” So he has no connection at all with the campaign, right? No connection whatsoever. Shih also reportedly had 10 paychecks from the Middlesex County Democratic Committee in his possession. One paycheck for $1,500 was | Read More »
Meanwhile, pay no attention to this drug bust in NJ.
The Corzine campaign wants it made CLEAR that Jason Shih is in no way, shape, or form involved with the releection campaign; that Mr. Shih is certainly not an assistant campaign director or staffer for the campaign; that they have no idea who Mr. Shih would even be, let alone why he would claim such a status; or why he would claim that the car | Read More »
Corzine: for leasing the Turnpike before he was against it…
Thursday, New York Times: The Democratic governor, Jon S. Corzine, says he may revisit his plan to lease the New Jersey Turnpike to raise cash — a proposal that he abandoned last year in the face of intense opposition from lawmakers and voters. Friday, Philly.com: New Jersey Gov. Jon Corzine says he has no plans to increase tolls or lease toll roads. (The New York | Read More »
NJ-GOV: New PPP, Rasmussen polls out.
And if you thought that yesterday’s semi-cryptic blog post from the former was just some prepare-the-Democrats-for-some-bad-news, and not an attempt to raise Republican hopes… well, you were right. Chris Christie now leads Jon Corzine 42-38 in the race to be New Jersey’s next Governor, a slight increase from our poll two weeks that showed his advantage at 40-39. In other words, the partisan Democratic polling | Read More »
I know that ‘Candidates swing away in final debate’ (NJ)…
…may make for an interesting headline; but I have a possibly more accurate one. Supporters face off An hour before the debate, crowds of Christie and Daggett supporters faced off in front of the studios, yelling taunts from opposite sides of the street and separated by cars. “Sinking ship! Sinking ship!” chanted the Daggett fans, a reference to Christie’s slippage in the polls. “We can’t | Read More »
Why *did* Gov. Corzine fund Ferriero’s corruption for so long?
I mean, I know that the Governor’s rich, thanks to Goldman-Sachs – so donating a mere $440,000 or so to former Bergen County chair Joe Ferriero (and yet another convicted Democratic politician) over the years may have been a mere lark. A minor duty. He just did what they told him to. Still, you’d have thought that Corzine might have noticed all the dirty dealing | Read More »
[Insert Torricelli-themed pun involving Corzine rumor here.]
RedState colleague Mark Impomeni reports that New Jersey Democrats may be contemplating putting the Torch to Corzine’s campaign: It could be déjà vu all over again in New Jersey, as rumors percolate that Democrats may force incumbent Gov. Jon Corzine off the November ballot if his poll numbers do not improve quickly. Corzine, a former United States Senator and first-term governor, trails Republican challenger Christopher | Read More »
NJ Gubernatorial polls.
The two new ones: Strategic Vision: Jim Geraghty reports that it’s 53-38 Christie over Corzine. Monmouth University/Gannett New Jersey: 37/49 approval rating for Corzine: only 13% think that he’s accomplished anything. It looks like the President’s emergency visit to New Jersey accomplished little, if anything, to rescue Corzine from his slump. So is it over? No, or at least not yet: but… If you begin | Read More »
Jon Corzine (D-NJ) should just do an *actual* Reality TV show.
If he’s seriously considering Randal Pinkett (the guy from Season Four of The Apprentice, apparently) for his running mate, he might as well get a camera crew together and film Who Wants to be a Losing Candidate for Lt. Governor ? There’s money in Reality TV, as I understand. I also understand that he kind of needs money right now. More from Politicker NJ, including | Read More »
Quote of the Day, Jim Geraghty Division.
“I realize we’re in an era where politicians will do anything to win, but Jon Corzine probably ought to ask himself whether he wants to come through this process with any molecules of dignity intact.” The answer? Of course not. He’s got nowhere left to go. Moe Lane PS: Chris Christie for Governor. Contribute here. PPS: Since the adultery of a sitting governor is apparently | Read More »
The Corzine campaign and the GOP have something in common.
We both want to link the (for-now) Governor of New Jersey to the President. Admittedly, their reasons are not ours; but that’s why we have elections. And the White House is worried about this one, to the point that they brought in Corzine to discuss it with Rahm Emanuel: A senior Obama administration official familiar with the meeting said Emanuel did not express concern with | Read More »
Jon Corzine plays the Bush card. No, really.
It was apparently ‘George W Bush’ this and ‘George W Bush’ that in his acceptance speech for the Democratic nomination tonight (in other words, he’s repeating his strategy from 2005, and Menendez’s from 2006). Which, as Jim Geraghty nicely (more nicely than he should have, maybe) notes, is interesting, given that Corzine currently polls below (36%) George W. Bush (41%). Heck, right now he’s polling | Read More »
