Now that we are at about 58% of the precincts reporting in New Jersey, it looks like Republican challenger Chris Christie has 50% of the vote to Democratic incumbent Jon Corzine’s 44% of the vote. That’s close. In fact, that’s too close for comfort if you’re a Christie supporter.
But be wary, folks. Large portions of Camden and Essex counties and many of the New York City suburbs have not reported their election results yet. These are areas that are notorious for voting the Democratic ticket for no reason other than that it is the Democratic ticket. These are also areas where there was talk a few weeks ago about a gigantic increase in vote by mail ballot applications along with some talk about the possibility that ACORN was helping to register voters. Something tells me that if these counties come in strong for Corzine (which everyone expects them to) and in enough numbers to sway the vote that there is going to be an explosion of citizen rage in this state.
We’re tired of corruption in New Jersey and we’re tired of paying for crooked politicians and their lies.
