Forrester Takes On Corzine

Published by at 8:23 am under 2006 Elections,All General Discussions

In what will be a very important governor’s race with impact on the Senate in 2006, we now have the line up for the NJ Govenor’s race this fall.. Corzine’s ego may be his undoing given NJ’s recent political scandals (e.g., McGreevey and his boyfriend being named head of NJ homeland security).

Corzine easily won the Democratic primary after facing only token opposition.

With 99 percent of precincts counted, Forrester had 106,542 votes, or 36 percent, to 93,541 votes, or 31 percent, for Schundler in the seven-way primary. Corzine had 88 percent of the vote.

If Forrester wins, Corzine may face problems in the Senate race next year since it will be easy to claim he is disinterested in the Senate given his run for Governor. Conversely, if Corzine wins he will be able to select his interim replacement in the Senate – something NJ is tired of seeing. McGreevey made sure his replacement would be able to run out his term, therefore bypassing the will of the citizens of NJ.
