A career criminal, er, Democrat politician (a redundancy, I know), that is calling it quits?
Maybe he understands something coming in the near future that few of the rest of us have even glimpsed.
I wish Pallone would go away too. He has been there too long as well.
Where? Is it a chance for an R pickup?
I'll start worrying when bankers start committing suicide.
Just go away Andrews, you commie slug.
It’s a safe bet.
Camden County, not a R pickup.” New Jerseys 1st District is a solidly Democratic seat. President Barack Obama carried the district with 66 percent in 2012.”
“Camden County, not a R pickup. New Jerseys 1st District is a solidly Democratic seat. President Barack Obama carried the district with 66 percent in 2012.”
From what is currently going on in Camden, I think one would have to rate it as the “outfall” of the sewer, that is New Jersey when it comes to politics.
Why resign? Couldn’t he just announce that he will not run for another term? Resignation means a special election that will cost the taxpayers money. Oh, wait, he’s a Democrat. They don’t give a d**n about the taxpayers.
Clearly, the goal is to sucker the Republicans into funding a run for another unwinnable seat, further diluting their available cash so there shall be fewer funds for other much less marginal contests.
The Republicans are running a not particularly effective campaign for what was formerly a Republican seat in the Tampa, Florida, area, against Alex Sink, a rabidly liberal Democrat who has all kinds of big money from the progressives behind her. This seat, however, is potentially winnable, and retained in the Republican column.
If Democrat Sink does win it, that would provide just a little more push for the Democrats to not get drubbed too badly in November (when the seat will be open again). If Alex Sink wins, that gives her the wide advantage of being an incumbent.
Takes 5 paragraphs for the writer to say he’s a Democrat.
The GOP last won the seat in 1972.
In NJ, there appears to be an unwritten law that if a Democrat under investigation for crimes resigns, the investigation immediately ceases and the Democrat rides off with buckets of mob/government/enviro/union/construction money.
See McGreevey, Torricelli, etc.
He’s leaving so he can start getting paid in the private sector NOW rather than waiting for months.
No Republican is gonna run seriously for that seat. Certainly the NRCC isn’t gonna spend a dime so nothing to worry about there Steel. Romney got a third of vote there. State Republicans didn’t even bother to try and win the US Senate seat special. They let a conservative they hate coast to the nomination (they put up some unknown with little resources against him in the primary) and then ignored him (and Christine didn’t schedule the election to coincide with his expected landslide to help the guy out either, he needlessly had a separate election first).
Last I heard the Republican was leading Alex Sink in Florida.
