Christie Wins GOP – Corzine Coasts

“Former U.S. Attorney Chris Christie has won the Republican nomination for New Jersey governor and will face incumbent Democrat Jon Corzine in November. Christie defeated former Bogota Mayor Steve Lonegan and Assemblyman Richard Merkt in Tuesday’s primary. The Associated Press called the race based on an analysis of partial election results.

Christie is trying to become the first Republican elected in a New Jersey statewide race since 1997.

The 46-year-old Mendham resident built a reputation as a corruption fighter during the seven years he spent as the state’s top federal law enforcement official under President George W. Bush.

Corzine faced token opposition in the Democratic primary. Vice President Joe Biden appeared with the 62-year-old former U.S. senator to formally launch his re-election bid after polls closed Tuesday night.

Who’s the meathead on the left?

The best thing about voting for Christie is he does not need a bodyguard. He is about 6’6 and over 300LBS.

He will save NJ at least 250K a year by not having to pay these ex-trooper juicers. Forget that non-seatbelt wearing girlie man Corzine.
I say we have a steel cage match between Christie and Corzine to decide it.

I think on the undercard you have Zimmer versus Cammarano. All she has to do is put a crease in his Dockers and he will forfeit.

let’s go! time to get rid of this old doofus who nobody in Hoboken is proud to call a neighbor, who is completely obnoxious talking about “a woman’s right” and wanting universal pre-K and criticizing people who take stances instead of letting everything under the sun fly. his only brilliant financial solutions were to raise tolls and sales tax. he is a tax-and-spend liberal windbag who has no creative ideas. anyone who votes for him is a moron. christie is a bright, articulate, energetic, successful, logical, tough man. why people wouldn’t give him a chance is beyond me.

Agreed. I have never voted for the Republican ticket before, but Christie would have to be wearing a white hood and carrying a burning cross in his campaign photos for me to not vote for him this time. Even if he is a crook as Lonegan claimed, it’s time to mix up the bag of crooks a little bit.
