There’s a reason Rush Holt’s constituents drive around CD12 with this bumpersticker, why it’s such a hot commodity. Only research physicist in Congress. Advocate for education and research funding. Forward-thinker. 5-time Jeopardy winner. Only man in Congress to beat IBM’s Watson in a head-to-supercomputer Jeopardy matchup.
But New Jersey may have more than one tough mind ready to play. And Sunday, Holt is hosting some of the smartest people in New Jersey politics in a hot game of Jeopardy.
Still tix left for Jeopardy 2012 Sunday 4-6pm RSVP/more info.

I promise you, none of these people want to miss any questions in front of this crowd. Expect high-stakes competition from some of NJ’s best and brightest. I’m really looking forward to this, and personally I’ll be cheering hardest for Shelley Adler, a very bright woman running to retake CD3 from a former football player who wasn’t ready for the job when he he was elected to the House, and still isn’t. But then, I think anybody on that list could beat Jon Runyan in a quiz game with half their I.Q. tied behind their back.
