Cox Question

So can Ed Cox keep his hand in this race? Or does Pirro steamroll him?

He clearly plans to hang in, perhaps hoping the endless airing of “where’s page 10” and the like will dampen her appeal.

Cox’s spokesman, Tom Basile, just sent out this statement:

“Partial-birth abortion is a serious moral issue. One’s position should be guided on a strong personal conviction – not political opportunism. Ed Cox has always favored a ban on this abhorrent procedure.

“On Monday, Ms. Pirro claimed to be ‘blue.’ On Tuesday, she claimed to be ‘red.’ Republicans and Conservatives should look at this flip-flop and ask ‘What is she going to be tomorrow?’

“That’s not the kind of candidate we need for the Republican and Conservative parties or the people of New York.”

2. The general election. In November, whichever two candidates make it out of the gubernatorial primary will face off to become the next New Jersey governor. While Phil Murphy (pictured) is the presumed favorite in the race due to current New Jersey Governor Chris Christie’s dismal approval ratings tanking Republican credibility for many NJ voters, the results are still up in the air. Additionally, with 11 months until the race, there is still ample time for a dynamic shift that could leave another candidate at the top.
