The mini-feud between Governor Jon Corzine and U.S. Senator Frank Lautenberg isn’t likely to erupt into a major war in the June Democratic primary, but one Democratic staffer suggested that the senior Senator’s opposition to Corzine’s toll hike plan should be taken seriously. Lautenberg has spent much of his more than 23 years in the Senate as an expert of transportation and budget issues, he served as a Commissioner of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, and like Corzine, he was a hugely successful CEO before getting into politics. So when Lautenberg decides to buck his own party – not something he’s done often over the years – perhaps its reasonable to wonder if he’s right.
