Do New Jersey Citizens Ever Get To Vote
We will repeat the question; does anyone know how Jon Corrine would govern New Jersey? What are his plans for the state, his ideas for solving our fiscal problems? Shouldn’t the people of New Jersey have an opportunity to choose the Democrat nominee based upon facts beyond the amount in a candidate’s bank account?
South Jersey Congressman Rob Andrews (D) threw his support behind U.S. Sen. Jon Corzine's (D) campaign for governor yesterday, eliminating the prospect of a three-way race for the Democratic nomination.
In addition to his own key endorsement, Andrews announced that he was bringing South Jersey's seven Democratic county chairmen into the Corzine fold. Andrews said he hoped his decision would help break the "state of paralysis" that has gripped Democrats as they await Codey's decision on whether or not to run. He personally called Codey yesterday morning to inform him of his decision.
Should Corzine be elected governor, one of his first acts would be to appoint his replacement in the Senate. Both men yesterday denied they struck any sort of deal for the endorsement.
"I obviously have an interest in the United States Senate," Andrews said, but added that he has no idea whether he will seek that office next year.
