Forrester had a great victory speech.  I think that he has a very good chance of winning.

It really was an excellent address and he can win in November, no doubt about that.

He better do exceptionally well among Independents and Moderate Democrats because social conservatives will be sitting this one out.

Wrong. Some social conservatives will sit it out but it's very, very clear that social conservatives dislike Corzine more than anyone else in this race. Plus, Forrester is not some liberal like Schundler tried to make him out to be. I expect Forrester to take the Independent vote, too.

Forrester did have a good speech while Corzines wasn't so hot.

Corzine has some very interesting plans for the state outlined on his website.

I think he'll be a great governor should he win.

Whats the difference between Corzine and Forrester when it comes to social issues?

It might be the fact that Corzine has compiled one of the most liberal records in the Senate and Forrester is no where near that. The only thing that they're the same on is that they're Pro Choice. NJ conservatives obviously despise Corzine. They might not like Forrester but they'd take him any day of the week over Corzine.

Forrester's speech may have been great, but I think that his chances of beating Jon Corzine are rather slim. Although Forrester can spend plenty of money, he can't match Corzine. Moreover, the fact remains that New Jersey is still, essentially, a blue state.

Not by all that much and Forrester is a strong enough candidate to overcome that.

Forrester won Warren. Also, Somerset is hardly the most conservative. Franklin and Bridgewater almost completely overturn the rest of the county's hard-core conservatism. Sussex and Hunterdon are probably the two most Republican.

If Corzine wins, I don't know what I'll do. 

Elect Tom Kean in 2006?

That's actually likely to happen especially if Corzine is Governor so don't get down Festoon.

I have one thing realy to say about Corzine and his run for Governor:

"A fool and his money are soon elected."
- Will Rogers

I just had to use that quote. It fits him so well.

Since I don't live in Jersey, I'd rather a Corzine win and a Kean win than a Forrester win and a Corzine win.

I said the same thing before but look at it this way (as NixonNow pointed out)...

Forrester wins the Governorship and Corzine would obviously be weak in 2006. Kean could beat him. I do see where you're coming from though. It would be somewhat of a chance to take but I'm still hoping that Forrester will win.

I have little doubt that Corzine will win the election, but he's probably going to appoint some sh**thead like Menendez and sacrifice his Senate seat. Republicans can still win in New Jersey with relative ease.

Andrews for Senate!
