Apparently not close enough to fraudulate the elections.

Star-Ledger just put a check next to Christie’s name on their election returns board. Hopefully, he will be much better than the last Republican governor of NJ, Bush friend Christie Whitman. I think he will.

Rove just released some big numbers. Conservatives voted unlike 2008. 300% increases in some counties. It may be enough to take care of the fraud.

yet stupid cnn and msnbc say “dead heat”. If the final tally is 50 to 44 percent, does that mean they tied?

I think he spent 60 million just to get hus senate seat, the gub races probably cost him at least half that..

heck, he has money, he left Goldman Sachs and made 400 million off his hunk of the company so he has dough to blow.

the is HUGE and SERIES!!!

The NJ race may give a glipse of what will happen in NY-23 and maybe CA-10. While the conventional wisdom says that politics is local, these elections at this point in time of our nation’s history may prove that the they have national undertones.

Hoffman has some votes to make up currently, fingers crossed, haven’t heard anything locally about turnout for the CA-10 race yet, turning the local news talk radio on to see what’s up.

NJ, really. I am praising someone but its not allah. Looks like more people are on the side of the 1776 revolutionaries than the Bill Ayers revolutionaries. How many years since their was an R at the end of the NJ governor?
