      For a Governor who talks about being a ” up front jersey guy” his failure to give a straight answer on his current plans are simply disingenuous.

      He needs to simply answerthe question,” will you commit to the taxpayers of Nj that you plan to serve out your full term as Governor if reelected?”

      Not a tough question for Mr. Honesty.

      A simple Yes or No answer will do.

      The Press ,as I predicted,is now picking up on this question and should ask it at every news conference.
