Mehlman stars in NJ

Mehlman, the architect of Bush-Cheney re-election campaign, is arguably one of the best political strategists of his generation. One party insider said that Mehlman, seeking to introduce his grassroots playbook to New Jersey, was fairly persuasive in his talk to several groups of Republican operatives and volunteers — and helped convince his party’s rank-and-file that Forrester can actually win.
