Independent Gubernatorial candidate Chris Daggett at the Star-Ledger editorial board meeting on Friday.

The Star-Ledger today endorses independent candidate Chris Daggett and recommends his election as the next governor of New Jersey.

"The newspaper’s decision is less a rejection of Gov. Jon Corzine and Republican Chris Christie than a repudiation of the parties they represent, both of which have forfeited any claim to the trust and confidence of the people of New Jersey. They share responsibility for the state’s current plight.
Only by breaking the hold of the Democratic and Republican mandarins on the governor’s office and putting a rein on their power will the state have any hope for the kind of change needed to halt its downward economic, political and ethical spiral."
They say Christie has no game plan and Corzine has not been an effective leader.  True in both cases.  Perhaps it suggests that people ponder the idea of voting 3rd party this time.

  1. The star ledger's endorsement of Chris Daggett is great news. I wish the republicans would stop the Bush/Rove Fear mongering. There is obviously a consensus that a vote for Daggett is not a vote for Corzine.

    Daggett is a viable candidate and there are many of this who are voting for him because we know he can win and is the only candidate who can change this state. The Star Ledger's endorsement echoes and re-affirms that opinion.

    We need people to get involved and spread the word about Chris Daggett.
