The Governor congratulated Steve Lonegan for outperforming all expectations in the New Jersey Senate race and suggested that elections in states such as South Carolina, Tennessee, Kentucky, and Mississippi were worth following.
One statistical footnote to keep in mind: the Governor campaigned for Lonegan in New Egypt, New Jersey last Saturday. New Egypt is located in Ocean County, one of the larger counties in the state. Lonegan pretty much matched Christie’s percentage in Ocean County from 2009 and exceeded Romney’s percentage considerably in Ocean County even though he was facing a much stronger Democrat with barely any financial resources.
Well, the Government is back open and the debt ceiling has been raised.
