Early campaigning in the new key state

One potential 2008 presidential candidate came to New Jersey today to attend Jon Corzine’s inauguration as Governor: Senator Joseph Biden of Delaware. Four other Senate colleagues attended: Frank Lautenberg and Robert Torricelli of New Jersey, Christopher Dodd of Connecticut and Paul Sarbanes of Maryland, as well as Governor Anibal Acevedo Vila of Puerto Rico and AFL-CIO President John Sweeney. Six of New Jersey’s twelve Congressmen were there — Rush Holt and Donald Payne were the only Democrats who did not attend, while Rodney Frelinghuysen was the only Republican who did.
