A few days ago, as I wrote earlier, Rush Holt got together some of the best known people in politics to play a little Jeopardy.
Players included: Shelley Adler, Candidate for US Congress, NJ-3
Assemblyman Dan Benson, former Dem state Chair Tom Byrne, current Chair Asm John Wisniewski, Gov. Jim Florio, Sen. Linda Greenstein, Sierra Club’s Jeff Tittel & Princeton Prof. Sean Wilentz. I’ve been posting the questions all weekend. Rush Holt wrote them himself along with his staff.
Want to play? So far the pollster is cleaning everybody’s clock. Let’s see how you do. Here are the next 2 categories, Destination NJ & Diamonds. Still to come tonight, Final Jeopardy and an announcement of which of Holt’s political friends won his Jeopardy 2012 event. Please remember to phrase your answer in the form of a question. Jump below the fold.
