Without a strong Democratic opponent ( Booker) or a Democratic opponent who would battle every day relentlessly( Sweeney),New Jersey will be in for a possible landslide victory by the Republicans in 2013.
Christie vs. anyone besides Booker or Sweeney will result in a 10 point victory and the loss of the State Senate and possibly the Assembly. Should that occur then Christie will make a bigger name for himself by following in the footsteps of the GOP Governors in Ohio,Wisc. and now Michigan.
The Unions in this state,ESPECIALLY THE GOVERNMENT WORKER BETTER BE REALISTIC OR THEY MIGHT LOSE ALL THEIR RIGHTS.
Backing Buono or some other lightweight will be a disaster.
If it happened in those states is can happen in NJ.
This is not a time for stupid grudges. Whether it is Booker or Sweeney the Democratic party must be united because the alternative is the end of the unions in New Jersey.
