Jersey’s Largest Paper Endorses a Candidate Neither Fat Nor Mean


By process of elimination, we’re obviously referring to Chris Daggett, the independent candidate for governor whom the New Jersey Star-Ledger believes could “send shock waves through New Jersey’s ossified political system, and we believe, provide a start in a new direction.” Just in time, the Times takes a look at how Daggett’s rising candidacy is “causing concern in both parties.” As he told a small crowd at a bar recently, “It’s like the ‘73 Mets. Ya gotta believe!” That might not be the best comparison, since the Mets went on to lose that year, but we get the idea! [CBS2, NYT]
