Daily newspaper endorsements: Forrester 9, Corzine 8

In his 2000 campaign for U.S. Senate, Jon Corzine received six daily newspaper endorsements —The Star-Ledger, the Trenton Times, the Jersey Journal, the Herald News, the Home News Tribune and the New York Daily News — while seventeen newspapers supported Republican Bob Franks. As a candidate for Governor, so far, Corzine has picked up five endorsements from newspapers that backed Franks — The Press of Atlantic City, the Philadelphia Inquirer, the New York Times, the Gloucester County Times and the Express-Times. He also lost one endorsement he had five years ago: The Star-Ledger endorsed Doug Forrester.
