The NYT headline reads, Corzine Allies Plan Attack in G.O.P. Primary.
Apparently the Corzine campaign people are worried because he’s now tied with former State Attorney General Chris Christie:
Mr. Corzine’s popularity has nosedived along with New Jersey’s economic fortunes, and recent polls show him trailing Mr. Christie, the former United States attorney for New Jersey.
Mr. Christie has based his campaign almost entirely on his credentials as a corruption fighter, having obtained convictions of some 130 New Jersey politicians and public employees. and promises to bring the same forceful leadership to tackling the state’s fiscal problems. The Democratic assault, according to one of the people briefed on the plans, will aim to tarnish that image.
Considering how the New Jersey electorate has continued to elect Democrat after corrupt Democrat no-matter-what in the past decade, perhaps Corzine’s overreacting.
