HILLSIDE - Senate Minority Leader Tom Kean, Jr. (R-21), Westfield, said his prime adversary in their turf war for control of the Senate is spening money because he's fearful.
"It shows that Steve Sweeney is scared," Kean said of Senate President Steve Sweeney of LD 3, where the most money is concentrated in this election cycle.
Kean wants to dethrone Sweeney and for months has operated under the assumption that Republican Gov. Chris Chrsitie would provide coattails.
A Rutgers-Eagleton Poll this morning shows Christie leading his Democratic opponent by 36 points and makes the case that coattails could be in effect.
"We've long been talking about the positive impact of this governor on legislative races," said Kean outside a coffee shop this morning in a crowd of Christie supporters awaiting the governor's arrival.
Kean started his day this morning, a day before Election Day, with train station campaign stops in Summit and his hometown of Westfield.
Does that mean he's on defense in his home district?
Kean smiled. "I always do doors and train stations," he said.

"This is my first Mark Smith event. There have been a lot of changes in Hudson County over the last year and a half, and the most important change that has happened is that there really is unity. For the first time, we really are working together. Despite political differences. Mark and I have worked very hard to repair that. I'm really happy to be here in support of him, because I recognize that when you work together, politics becomes secondary and you really have time to focus on government, which is the most important thing." - Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop- PolitickerNJ.com
