In other news , don't expect State Assembly/ Senate coattails like Tom Kean''s reelection in 1985. Maybe shirt sleeves.

Kean’s reelection victory in ‘85 was relatively shallow. He didn’t have the Senate (though it wasn’t up), and although the NJ GOP gained 14 seats in the Assembly for majority control, in 2 cycles (with Flim Flam Florio’s election in ‘89), those gains were completely wiped out. It took Florio to give the GOP commanding majorities (in ‘91, an astonishing 58R-22D Assembly lead), though the worthless RINOs Whitman and DiFrancesco pissed it all away.

Right now, it would take 9 seats in the Assembly to get a majority, which the NJ GOP hasn’t gotten since 1999. They need 5 in the Senate.

**rather Kean’s victory was commanding, his coattails were relatively shallow (and receded swiftly).

There is no way in the world I would live in the liberal hellhole that Christie has spent his years making even worse than it used to be. I also would not even consider voting for Christie to turn my country into what he has made his state into.

NJ is not a liberal hellhole.
The state has been suffering from an infection caused by liberals, progressives and their greedy friends.

It was people like McGreevey (D) (the embarrassment) and another guy (can't seem to remember his name /S)(also a D) who selfishly dragged the taxpayers over a cliff in their pursuit of other things.

People can say what they want about Christie. But he loves NJ.
The other guys were busy chasing other men, or looking longingly across the ocean to wall street.

I’m just curious because I do not live in New Jersey. What laws and policies has Christie championed that have made New Jersey more liberal than when he took over as governor?

NJ’s finacial woes started with Gov Florio borrowing 900 million from the PFRS (Police and Firefighter pension fund) to balance his state budget. Whitman criticized this during her campaign which unseated him. Then she turned around and did the same thing twice.She also went on a massive state hiring spree increasing the states workforce about %40 or so. Then she changed the funding formula which determined how much cities and towns had to pay into these pension funds. It was an accounting gimmick instead of trying to change the state laws, which she broke. She was a RINO. McGreevy and Corzine were useless.

Actually, you make a valid point!!! I was so ticked off at Christie, I started to bad mouth him.....and then I thought to myself, I better do a “Fiddler-On-The-Roof” assessment of him, before I go off the deep end. Christie has been tough on the public service unions in New Jersey. He is not afraid to take anyone on, if he believes it benefits New Jersy citizens, all of them. Could it be that he is working to pull in a Republican controlled legislature with him this coming November?

I thought this when Christie set the special election for the USA Senate in October, rather then on November election day. He forces the Democrats to spend chuncks of their capital, money & energy on a primary and special election, held in August/October of this year. He, then runs alone, winning a massive victory, because of two things his vast popularity and many Democrats staying home on the November election day!!! Thus, he pulls in a good number of Republicans with him, takes over the NJ legislature and positions himself for a strong POTUS run in 2016!!! Methinks....Christie has a method to his madness!!! We’ll see!!! Just thinking!!!

"NJ is not a liberal hellhole."

If there were some way to cede the corridors 10 miles on each side of the NJ Turnpike and the Atlantic City Expressway to New York, New Jersey would be a very conservative state. There is a reason why Republican presidential candidates always spend a lot of time here for fund-raisers.

Parts of New Jersey are a liberal hellhole -- but so is Austin, Texas!

Where I live in NJ we don’thide our heads in shame. We elect people like Rep. Scott Garrett who is among the most conservative in the house.
I can’t speak for the rest of this shameful state.

McGreevy did one good thing. He straightened out the mess at the D.M.V. Otherwise he was just a guy in a mens room looking for sex.

Exactly !!

Geographically most of New Jersey is Republican. Even within most of the blue districts on the map there is a sizeable Republican electorate. As you know, we are outnumbered by pockets of high population Democrat urban and suburban enclaves (e.g. Newark, Paterson, Atlantic City, Trenton).

Most Freepers do not know that northwestern New Jersey is represented by one of the most conservative members of the House of Representatives, Scott Garrett (0% NARAL rating, 100% NRLC rating, 100% Christian Coalition rating, A rating from NRA).

I get sick of some of the shallow NJ bashing on this site. Especially in the wake of Sandy. Ignorant comments like the NJ shore deserved what we got because we voted for Obama when it is a fact that the two hardest hit counties (Monmouth & Ocean) both were won easily by McCain/Palin and Romney Ryan.

There is a reason President Obama had his Sandy rally in Asbury Park. because it is the only sizeable Democrat area on the whole Jersey shore besides Atlantic City.

40 points and 150 pounds, the gov's tummy staples should have been put over his lips.

If this fat slob is the gop pick in 2016 I'm voting for the real communist, hildabitch.

If we're gonna get into a shooting fight, I want to be able to still see the sight picture and squeeze off a couple.

I think he’s gonna be Hillary’s VP in 2016.

There is already a “mediagasm” over the possibility of a “bipartisan” ticket.

NJ Fatboy will go for it figuring he’ll be the perfect age to be POTUS after her thighness is done.

Here is your future, America:

Team Clinton will eliminate Obama in 2015. 1) He humiliated Hillary! 2) He should be getting Bill his coffee. 3) Hillary! needs a national crisis like November 1963-November 1964 to win a big victory.

The hit will be done in a way to implicate Republicans, rural whites, and gun owners.

The resulting social chaos will throw the GOPe into even more craven whimpering and cowering. The authorities will allow a pogrom against rural whites and Republicans before a crackdown involving militarized Homeland Security assets.

“In the spirit of unity and healing” Hillary! will pick that prominent Republican, Chris Christie, as her running mate and announce that he will be put in charge of “commonsense gun control”, given his terrific record on that vital issue in NJ.

It’s interesting how sometimes there are coattails are sometimes there aren’t. Ike 1952 versus Ike 1956.

I guess it depends on a lot of factors.

In this case a lot of straight up democrats are voting for Fat boy in what looks like a virtually uncontested reelection ala Weld in MA 1994, they won’t vote Republican for state legislature. Did Weld have any coattails that year?

Weld literally did nothing to help the MA GOP. He was running against his then-wife’s cousin (Mark Roosevelt). Although they both came from the anti-Conservative RINO clique (or rather, I consider them both to be Democrat agents), Weld didn’t want Willard winning the Senate seat because it would’ve stolen the spotlight from him.

Weld swept in enough seats in 1990 (although to the point, it was an anti-Democrat/Dukakis backlash) that the GOP came within competitive control of the Senate (for the first time since the 1950s). But rather than build on it, it was pissed away. In fact, all the gains in that body were wiped out by the ‘92 midterms (from 8 seats to 16 in ‘90 back to 9 in ‘92). In ‘94, they gained all of ONE seat, and in ‘96, slipped down to 7 and has never been as high since.

As for the House, only 6 seats were added in 1990 (technically insignificant - they’d have needed 32 seat gains just to match the Senate %). 4 seats were lost in ‘92. As for ‘94 ? They gained just ONE seat in the House, just like the Senate. To say that was embarrassing was an understatement.

Worse, yet, the GOP only barely was able to cling to the two U.S. House seats they won in 1992. Those were gone by ‘96. Weld was so bored in Boston that when he didn’t get the Senate seat, he was looking for any way out (which led to the spectacular bitch-slapdown of Weld for Ambassador to Mexico by Jesse Helms. I was never more proud of a Senator than I was of Helms at that moment. He not only stopped Hillary’s good buddy, but silenced that fraud Lugar who was hoping to push Weld through. Absolutely magnificent).

Yeah I didn’t think so.

And unfortunately I doubt Tubby will deliver control on maps which I assume are rat friendly (is the Senate up). Hopefully we’ll gain more than ONE seat though.

That huge majority from the early 90’s looks so far away it may as well have been the 1890’s.
