Alito for President?

New Jersey has not had a serious favorite son presidential candidate since Woodrow Wilson won in 1912, but that could change in the future: U.S. Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito, a West Caldwell resident, may want to seek a future Republican presidential nomination. That’s according to New York Post gossip columnist Cindy Adams, who says “that’s what friends who don’t want their names mentioned are telling other friends who are telling me the man wants.”

The last time a sitting Justice left the Supreme Court to run for President was Charles Evans Hughes in 1916. Hughes carried New Jersey in his race to oust Wilson.
