Stumping throughout central Jersey on Sunday, Gov. Jon Corzine dismissed the recently formed Common Sense America as a closeted anti-gay group masquerading as a champion of fiscal conservatism.
In defiance of Fair and Clean Elections in the 14th district, the Princeton-based outfit has spent an estimated $450,000-worth of ads against Democratic Assemblywoman Linda Greenstein and by extension, her running mate, labor leader Wayne DeAngelo.
"It’s not going to end up having a major impact," said Corzine, with Greenstein, DeAngelo and state Senate candidate Seema Singh, at his side in Hamilton’s Golden Dawn Diner.Read More >

All week long the insider talk was Codey versus Mayor Rudy Giuliani, whom Karcher’s opponent, Republican Assemblywoman Jennifer Beck, welcomed to Manalapan yesterday to bang the party tom toms of small government and property tax relief.Read More >
