Will the GOP/conservatives sweep New Jersey, Virginia and New York 23?
CEO, Patriarch Partners
In Virginia’s Governors race and NY-23, a strong and energized conservative base will overwhelm weak Democratic candidates. In NJ, however, Corzine has drawn even in the race after President Obama lent his star power to the beleaguered Democratic governor who had previously trailed his Republican challenger, Chris Christie. While Christie still has a chance, Obama won 57% of the vote in NJ last November and his presence campaigning for Corzine, along with a strong independent candidate who will siphon votes from Christie, may constitute a sufficient force to push Corzine over the top.
