Corzine plan will reduce power of party bosses

Gov. Jon Corzine will take on some of the party bosses from both sides today with his proposal to substantially reduce certain campaign contribution limits aimed at eliminating wheeling by local party organizations. The proposal was put together without input from Democratic County Chairs, and a scheduled briefing for the party leaders for this morning was cancelled.

Expect some party leaders to go ballistic, but others will join Corzine at his his 2:30 PM announcement on the steps of the Statehouse to offer their support.
