Is he really a conservative? AddisonDM 16:30, 1 June 2009 (EDT)
I've been following the New Jersey gubernatorial election pretty closely. Christopher Christie doesn't sound like a RINO, all he's been doing during the campaign is emphasizing conservative messages. Both Christie and Lonegan are conservatives, they pretty much agree on everything except for the flat tax.
Steve Lonegan lost for state Senate in 1997, lost for Congress in 1998, lost for county executive in 2002, and lost for Governor in 2005. You know the saying politics make strange bedfellows, well both liberal Democrats in Trenton and some of the people here on conservapedia have one thing in common. They both want Lonegan to win the GOP primary. Chippeterson June 1, 2009.
- Just saying, I think Lonegan is somewhat more conservative. BTW he may have lost those elections but Christie has held almost no political offices. Even so, I admit he may be better equipped to win. AddisonDM 19:53, 1 June 2009 (EDT)
Not that it matters much, but nj.com seems to have got the result wrong in Passaic County. The county's own website (www.passaiccountnj.org) shows Corzine 56,158/Christie 48,131 with 99.29% of the votes counted. But the more interesting map is the one published in the New York Times today showing that the number of voters increased over 2005 in 11 of the 13 counties won by Christie and decreased in 5 of the 8 counties won by Corzine (http://www.nytimes.com/imagepages/2009/11/05/nyregion/05christie-graphic.html).
