Bloomberg News (New York, NY)

Republican NJ gubernatorial candidate, Chris Christie is leading Gov. Jon Corzine (D) 51%-42%. The latest Quinnipiac University poll finds that voters say corruption is a serious problem in the state, and more people associate Democrats with political bribery than they do Republicans.

New York Times (New York, NY)

NY Gov. David Paterson‘s (D) is facing mounting doubts about his ability to carry the Democratic ticket in 2010. High unemployment across New York is increasing voters’ negative opinions of Paterson and his party. Party leaders in the State fear he will not be a viable candidate for governor and that his association will harm the chances of other New York races which have lead to discussions on way to replace him.

The Post-Standard (Syracuse, NY)

Democrats have chosen a candidate to run in the special election to replace Republican Rep. John McHugh (NY-23). Bill Owens beat out 10 other candidates Monday night to pick up the endorsement. Owens will now face the moderate pro-choice Republican nominee, Assemblywoman Dede Scozzafava.

USA Today (Washington, DC)

The recent heated town hall debates on health care reform emphasize a recent USA Today/Gallup poll that shows Americans are much divided over the reforms. The divisions are beyond party platforms and represent differences in perspective based on age, region, and employment status.

    The Star Ledger’s endorsement of Chris Daggett is great news. I wish the republicans would stop the Bush/Rove Fear mongering. There is obviously a consensus that a vote for Daggett is not a vote for Corzine, except among those who use mass psychological terror to promote their own agendas.

    Daggett is the only viable candidate and there are many of this who are voting for him because we know he can win and is the only candidate who can change this state. The Star Ledger’s endorsement echoes and re-affirms that Daggett is a viable candidate and can win.

    Facts are facts and I don’t know how you can ignore them.

    Furthermore, Daggett is now polling at 18% and there even rumors on that NYC Mayor Micheal Bloomberg will endorse Daggett. If Still think Daggett Can’t win then read this to find out why your wrong. 11 Years ago Jesse Ventura was polling in the low teens, much lower than Daggett just three weeks before the election and he won.

    I say no to Chris Christie because

    The Chris Christie mafia connections.
    Christie’s multiple multi-million dollar bribe scandals.
    Illegal campaign finance by Christie and Corzine.
    Voting for the lesser of two evils is still a vote for evil.
    The Chris Christie style of justice..

    I can go on and on about both Chris Christie and Jon Corzine. The skyrocketing cost of living, the Exodus of jobs, residents, business and income from the state, corrupt politicians from my local municipality, to the county court house, to Trenton all the way to Washington.

    That’s why I refuse to vote Corzine or Christie. I am Voting Chris Daggett and so should you

    Only voter’s have the power to change the government. We must refuse to be held captive to the broken two-party system that has brought a plaque of scandal and corruption into our government by fear of voting for a third party. Its time to send a message to politicians in NJ and all across the country. Its time to end politics as usual.

    Even if your not from NJ you can still cyber volunteer.

    Regardless of who Chris Daggett hurts, Daggett is not a spoiler and he can win.

    Daggett has broken 20 percent and can win. The Washington Post says at 20% there is a path for Daggett to win and political analysts say with 25% in the polls Daggett can win.

    Now its a matter of getting that last 100,000 votes to get Daggett in a position to win.

    To do that we are reaching out to voters that want to Vote for Daggett but are afraid a vote for Daggett is a wasted vote. So…

    The I’ll vote for Daggett Pledge:

    “I want to vote for Chris Daggett, but only if he has a real chance of winning. He needs pledges from 100,000 people like me. I don’t want to wait til Election Day to find out that those votes existed, but we were all afraid to cast them. So, I’m signing my name below, with my address to prove that I’m real, and pledging that if 100,000 people like me sign up, I will vote for Daggett.”
