Drumthwacket watch: Can Christie beat Corzine for the NJ governor's mansion? 

It is early, but Republicans would do well to focus on beating Jon Corzine in November. It would be a great start to 2010. And it is not the pipedream you might imagine -- Republican prosecutor Chris Christie is ahead in the polls by nine points. His website is here.

I was at a local NNJ township Rep Club meeting, and Bergen Freeholder candidates said the word is that the whole party will make this election an anti-corzine election at all levels.

Any word on that plan in your neck of the woods?

I'm not plugged in to the state Republicans and in any case there aren't any in Princeton. But it sounds like a good strategy.

Woooo...wingnut intrique. Dark plans from the "healthcare's not a right, it's a privilege" crowd. hahaha

But what happens when Rush thumbs-down Christie? It could happen...she recently broke bread with Corey Booker, say my NJ sources...

Christie is a "he."

And FWIW, last time I read the United States Constitution, there was no right to health care. Or right to have your mortgage paid by someone else, your children supported by someone else, your big screen TV financed by someone else, etc.

But hey, you can dream.

There's one Republican in Princeton! Me. Honestly though, with all those earmarks in the latest porkfest I'm thinking "third party".

As far as Christie goes, he has to convince me he's something other than another machine politician. His website is terrible, by the way.

Have no fear. The NJ Dems will find a way.

If the polls don't improve, they'll just put Lautenberg on the ballot instead of Corzine, and make the change two hours before the polls open, so we can't change our game plan.

"...she recently broke bread with Corey Booker, say my NJ sources...

Chris Christie is a MAN. Duh.

US Attorney Christie had approx 138 indictments of corrupt NJ politicians. Vast Majority were Democrats.
