    The campaign business, it would seem to me a top tier potential candidate (Booker,Sweeney, or other machine sponsored candidate) would already have a person in mind that is or has already been employed by the machine.  

    My guess would be an anti-machine politician gearing up to be a serious challenger.  I’m hoping for Bollwage,Buono, or Codey.

    That would be my guess.  Insiders like Booker, Sweeney wouldn’t need to advertise, and Codey’s been acting governor.  I’m not sure whether Bollwage and Wisnewski would describe themselves as “progressive.”

    According to the job posting is for State Senator Barbara Buono.  She is also attending the Democratic Governors Association (DGA) conference in Los Angeles and is conducting a poll in NJ.  It looks pretty likely that she is preparing to run for Governor.

    Going to alert everybody at DGA that I know that she’s coming to LA.
