More machine chatter

I posted earlier that there might be some signs of trouble for Corzine in Hoboken in Hudson County. I’ll check back on that in a while, but I’m also hearing that turnout is solid in other parts of Hudson, perhaps indicating that the machine is in gear. In a North Bergen election district, 113 out of 490 voters had turned out by 11:30. In that district, 239 turned out all day in 2001. A strong Hudson showing by Corzine might boost U.S. Rep. Robert Menende, Hudson’s de facto boss, as he angles to replace Corzine in the Senate. “The machines are all out there trying to prove themselves for Corzine,” explained one Democrat.
