It ain’t over till the fat guy wins,
Republican Chris Christie, a former federal prosecutor, pulled out a win for the New Jersey governor’s race against a deeply unpopular Democratic incumbent whom voters blamed for the state’s high taxes and budget woes.
The Associated Press called the race for Mr. Christie over incumbent Gov. Jon Corzine just after 10 p.m. With 71% of precincts reporting Tuesday night, Mr. Christie had 50% of the vote to Mr. Corzine’s 44%.
No one, believe me, no one is more surprised than I.
