Corzine News Brieflet # 10
Corzine's liberal votes could appeal to N.J. values, so says Herb Jackson. Senator Corzine has not hidden his liberal leanings since he emerged as a candidate in 1999. But exactly how far left he leans was brought into new focus by the latest National Journal ratings, which are published in today's issue.
Only two members of the U.S. Senate Paul Sarbanes (D-MD) and Jack Reed (D-RI). have lifetime voting records that are more liberal than the one Jon Corzine has built since 2001, a new analysis by the National Journal shows. The data show Corzine voted the liberal line more often than Massachusetts' Ted Kennedy and New York's Hillary Rodham Clinton.
No Press Releases Today
Senator Corzine did not release a statement to the press today. Apparently basking in the glow of the fantastic liberal ranking from the National Journal and the media putting the best “values” spin on the news for him, led his PR team to conclude no statement was required.
Record Of Accomplishment
As of today, Senator Corzine has not accomplished anything for the State of New Jersey.
