New Jersey Governor Chris Christie trounced his Democratic opponent to win a second term and bragging rights as a potential 2016 Republican candidate for U.S. president who can appeal across party lines.
New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, a Republican poised to win re-election tomorrow, has garnered support across partisan lines. He led Democratic challenger Barbara Buono by 28 percentage points in the latest poll.
New York Republican mayoral candidate Joseph Lhota, who trails Democrat Bill de Blasio by about 40 points in the polls, compared himself to the movie hero “Rocky” in predicting an upset victory in the last debate before the Nov. 5 election.
Steve Lonegan, who’s running for U.S. Senate in New Jersey, said fellow Republicans had “guts” to shut down the federal government. He’d be happy, he says, if his epitaph proclaims him “the guy who dismantled the IRS.”
Bill de Blasio, seeking to become the first Democratic mayor of New York in two decades, widened his lead over Republican Joseph Lhota to 50 percentage points, according to a Quinnipiac University poll.
Joseph Lhota celebrated his victory in New York’s Republican mayoral primary with a 17-minute speech in a packed Manhattan ballroom. He said his dad was a city cop and his mother worked so her kids could attend parochial school.
New York mayoral candidate Bill de Blasio has support from 39 percent of likely Democratic voters, just shy of the 40 percent he needs in tomorrow’s election to avoid a runoff with his closest competitor, according to a Quinnipiac University poll.
Anthony Weiner, the former U.S. congressman who resigned two years ago after engaging in lewd online behavior, would be a formidable candidate in a crowded New York mayoral field, pollster Maurice Carroll said.
U.S. Representative Anthony Weiner ’s admission that he had inappropriate online exchanges with several women adds his name to a list of politicians who endured embarrassment to stay in office or saw their careers ruined over sexual scandals.
