Wolfe: 5th not winnable for Democrats

Democrat Anne Wolfe says she dropped her bid for Congress in the fifth district because Republican Scott Garrett is not beatable in 2006. “Because of the 30,000 vote gap that has caused disinterest from all pollsters, pundits and endorsing groups in Washington D.C. the 5th Congressional District is not a viable race in the 2006 cycle,” Wolfe told PoliticsNJ.com. “If you examine all poll and projections for races targeted you do not find the 5th in New Jersey cited. I heard over and over again from potential contributors and donors that the race ‘has viability problems.'” Wolfe says that her decision not to seek a rematch with Garrett had nothing to do with a primary challenge from former McGreevey spokesman Paul Aronsohn.
