    I live in NJ,Booker should sit the Gov. run out and he would be assured the Gov. mansion in 2017. He could win in 2013, but he would need an Obama like turnout by African Americans to do it. If he could get that with the unions,it's possible. The thing is moderate dems with no ties to organized labor like Christie. We have had a boat load of bad Gov. and he is at least perceived as doing his job. I'm not voting for him,but I know dems that will.

      performance.  My NJ friends are Dems and don't much like him but he's not so bad that they are on a crusade to defeat him.  Some of them are saying they may actually vote for him even tho they voted against him last time.  Dubious he can be beaten next year.  But is important to nail the legislature again for the Dems to keep Christie's worst GOP instincts in check.

        The dems will keep the Legislature mostly due to redistricting and the fact that although public unions dislike some of the dem turncoats that helped Christie,they understand that NJ becomes Wisconsin if the Legislature flips. I am a NJ Probation Officer and people in my office were saying they weren't going to vote last year when the Legislature was up to punish them for helping Christie. I told them if you don't vote we will have our right organize stripped.
