Great commericial for Jon Corzine - NJ Gov race
George Bush is about as popular as foot fungus in the state of New Jersey. Just saw a great ad for Jon Corzine tonight while watching Lost on the local ABC channel.

The add shows something that Corzine supports like Stem Cell Research or Choice - then it shows Doug Forester and in the ad the narrator says "Like George Bush, Doug Forester also is against Stem Cell/Choice/Gun Law Loopholes" They did that 3 times in the commercial with connect Doug Forrester to the very unpopular George Bush.

Great ad - should help ensure Corzine a win in November

1. do you know why Corizine want's to be Gov and not a Senator?
I would think he has more power being a NJ Senator. Has he always been out to become gov.? I'll miss him in D.C.

Also I heard the Dem governor now in NJ is pretty popular. Why didn't he want to run again?

2. Because right now the Democratic Party in NJ is on the verge of collapse
First Toricelli and then McGreevey, the party was about to be lost and potentially back into the hands of the republican party. Corzine has been a great senator - the fact that he has paid for all his own campaigns out of his own pockets means that he's not bought & sold by the corporations. Both Schundler & Forrester (They both ran in the primaries for gov) have run statewide campaigns and have name recognition but unfortunately there wasn't a strong candidate for the democrats. With Corzine running for governor, he has a chance to not only restore the party but to elevate another local candidate into statewide recognition (Corzine will pick his replacement for in the senate).

And it's a smart move in another sense - if Corzine ever wants to run for president, governors seem to have better luck than Senators.

NJ is a strong liberal state but with all the corruption and overprice cost of homes & insurance it's so easy for the voters to get fed up and vote the other party.

3. Cody is his name. He was encouraged to "step aside"...
... in the vernacular of the pols... in favor of Cold Cash Corzine.

Step aside he did.

Interesting thing is this: Corzine is having much more trouble than he or the DEM organization anticipated and the party may well lose this state house. Which they might have held with a more appealing candidate.

In the meantime Corzine, I'm assuming, can return to the senate. Where, word is, he's "bored."

Only tragedy in that scenario is for the national party as the NJ DEMS are... shall we say... compromised, and due for a comeuppance.

4. I don't think that Corzine is going to lose
Bush is polling horribly in NJ so as long as Corzine keeps equating Doug Forrester = George W. Bush then he'll be fine. Ever poll I've seen has Corzine ahead and personally I like the guy - always have!

Thanks for the team unity here with the election a few weeks away :D

5. You would think... but they've been running it for several weeks ...
and the race has actually tightened.

Still it can't hurt to identify the local republicans with President Foot Fungus and I wish the NYC DEMS would follow suit. They are setting themselves up for a blowout shellacking at the hands of the pro-war, pro-Bush Bloomberg by running a wimpy, half-hearted, nearly messageless campaign.

6. I've seen this before in NJ and I think Corzine will be fine
The state is way too liberal and I've yet to find someone in New Jersey that likes George Bush. Ultimately Forrester's downfall will be his ties to the Bush administration.

BTW, I don't watch much commericial TV so I guess that ad was new to me

:shrug:
