The field of moderate candidates is getting quite crowded with the addition of DiGaetano.

If NJ Republicans have learned anything over the past 2 decades, you only win statewide with moderate Republicans like Kean and Whitman. NJ is moving more and more towards the Democrats. Either your party changes like the California GOP did, or you are finished for a while.

I hope Schundler wins, he would be one of the best governors in the country. It was a big mistake voting McGreasy over Schundler.

"McGreasy"? I think his record provides enough fodder without having to resort to his name, now.

I think it will be interesting to see the GOP primary. If Schundler learned his lesson, I say go with him. If he hasn't, then go with someone safe like DiGaetano. Just not Allen the liberal leftist.

Fine with me - refuse to back the one type of Republican who could actually beat Jim.

The NJ GOP leadership dislikes Schundler as much as the Democrats. If he is elected, the rules of the game change, if he's elected government gets cleaner. The central leadership of either party don't want this.

I would like to see Robert Ray run against Rep. Rush Holt. I think NOW he has the best shot at doing it. Since, we found Saddam and Holt didn’t vote for the war resolution.

DiGaetano is wasting time and money. He couldn’t even help out Kelly this year. How is he going to be Governor? Boggles my mind.

I am a huge fan of Bret, but he made a lot of Republicans in this mad. He didn’t endorse anyone and that ticked people off. Then a lot of Republicans saw him with ex- Senate President Bennett down in Freehold during one of the lowest moments in the NJ GOP’s history. Bennett blew it big time by staying in the race, if he really wanted the Republicans to maintain power in the state house he would of swallowed his pride and dropped out.

I agree with you on Forrester, I worked on his campaign for a while in my county. I think he handled himself well during the debates and toasted the two veterans such as the “Torch” and the old guy we have down in DC now.

No way in the world will Diane Allen get it, North Jersey Republicans absolutely despise her.

Tom Kean Jr. would easily win over the moderate voter in this state. He just has to prove himself to the Conservatives. I think he should make “double, triple dipping” a major issue in this state. There are way too many “Demon-Rats” in this state that hold multiple elected positions.

As for Murray Sabrin… I think he is great, but I work for him. lol

Oh whatever. There should not be a comma after 'since'.

Out of all the probable candidates my favorite is Mike Carroll. If he had the momentum behind him then NJ will be a very appealing state once again.

Its sad, the good guys never win on this one. Carroll is a great guy, I wish the GOP would get in gear and pick a true Republican (Never a Sellout).

Lonegan is a true Republican, but he want be able to win over the GOP in the south.

Schundler can win back the Govenor's office for NJ Republcan's in 2005. McGreevy is doing a horrible job and his approvals are very low. I think New Jerseyites will realize the mistake they made in 2001 and give him the keys to Governor's office.

Sun, December 28, 2003 09:21:46 PM UTC0:00
Well.. lets just hope so.

Its very funny. In 2001 the Demonrats in this state thought McGreevey was going to become President or Vice President some day.

Now around this state some of the Dems pretend he never exsited. They want him out and put someone else in.
