Codey is Corzine’s main obstacle

Sources familiar with legislative vote counting say that Gov. Jon Corzine has the votes to pass his proposals for sweeping campaign finance reform in the State Senate and General Assembly. In the Assembly, where his plan has the endorsement of Assembly Speaker Joseph Roberts, the Governor has bi-partisan support that guarantees swift passage. But in the Senate, where Republicans will give him plenty of votes, Corzine's problem is Senate President Richard Codey. Codey, sources say, is strongly opposed to the proposed reforms and off-the-charts mad at Corzine. While the Assembly is expected to move quickly, Codey could offer considerable delays in the Senate.
