The KeyHouseRaces Candidate of the day is Jon Runyan (NJ-03) ^ | 16 October 2010 | Interceptpoint

Posted on 10/16/2010 9:42:49 AM PDT by InterceptPoint

The Key House Races "Candidate of the Day" thread will be posted daily up until Nov. 2 and feature a different candidate each day. Each of these candidates is in a Toss Up, Leans D, or Likely D race and represents one of the front line soldiers in the fierce battle for control of the U.S. House.

The DCCC and liberal special interest groups are pouring resources into these races and will continue to do so up until Nov. 2. Thousands of donations targeted toward the GOP candidates in competitive races will NEUTRALIZE the donations of these Democratic special interest groups. Targeted donations are KEY to the GOP taking back the House in November and derailing the Pelosi/Obama Express of failed economic policies, bailouts, higher taxes, and government takeovers.

If you want your donations to have the greatest impact, here's where to start. Click on the Republican candidate's name below to link to the website where you can make a donation.

One term Dem John Adler is runnning for re-election in a district where Republican Governor Christie won by a margin of 17%. He has a tough road ahead against well known ex-NFL offensive tackle, sports media figure, and GOP Young Gun Jon Runyan. Runyan's view that lower taxes and balanced budgets are the source of new job creation will be a game changer against the tax and spend Adler.

Runyan  (R) 30 % 23-Sep-2010
Adler (D) 38 % Stockton/Zogby
Runyan (R) 39% 26-Sep-2010
Adler (D) 41% Rutgers/Eagleton
Runyan (R) 39 % 30-Sep-2010
John Adler (D)

Courier post broke the story that the Adler camp planted a fake tea party candidate on the ballot.

I live in this district and will LOL when I see the fake Tea Party candidate on the ballot. I only hope enough voters know this is a Democrat trick and that it wont hurt Runyan.

Yup, Peter DeStefano. Here's the article.

This was very similar to another race in the Philadelphia area, Pennsylvania's 8th District, where staffers for two-term Democrat incumbent Patrick Murphy worked to get perennial "conservative" gadfly candidate Tom Lingenfelter on the ballot to draw votes from Republican Mike Fitzpatrick. Luckily, the courts tossed Lingenfelter off the ballot.

Another similarity between the two races is that both Adler and Murphy are running as "Blue Dog" Democrats, even though both vote with Nancy Pelosi more than 90% of the time.

The Democrats are desperate and will do anything to avoid facing the voters and running on their actual records. They thought the Age of the Left had arrived with Obama's election, but now they're forced to recruit fake conservative stalking horses and pretend to be conservatives themselves.

I heard that the dims did the same thing in FL-8, running a phony Tea Party candidate against Dan Webster for certifiable nutcase Alan Grayson.

Runyan was endorsed by the Courier-Post today. I think that will seal the win for this Republican.

The C-P reported how Rep.Adler had put a bogus Tea Party candidate on the ballot and lied about it.—the-choice-is-Runyan
