The State Houses – What’s At Stake in 2010

Thirty-nine states will be electing a governor during the 2009-2010 election cycle. Of these, eighteen races will not include an incumbent and four incumbents who will be running were not elected to their current position. The recession and huge budget deficits threaten to undercut the power of incumbency for governors running for reelection.

Corzine Pounces

By · Aug, 31 2009

Jon Corzine’s campaign seems to smell blood in the water over his Republican challenger Chris Christie’s failure to disclose a $46,000 loan to Michelle Brown, a former subordinate in the US Attorney’s office.

The Democrat is on the air with a television ad calling out Christie for what they see as a clear double standard. They’re going for the soft center of Christie’s entire candidacy – his image as a clean government reformer.

Somehow, the Corzine campaign seems to have successfully turned the conversation in this race into one about Chris Christie’s image rather than a referendum on Corzine’s performance.
