DIANE ALLEN

A proven winner in a Democratic-leaning legislative district, the former TV anchorwoman has cross-over appeal and an undeniably independent brand. Of course, that cuts both ways, as she continues to toil at cross purposes with Glenn Paulsen, Bill Layton and the upper management of the Burlington County Republican Organization, who would probably be less than enthusiastic about throwing their shoulders to the wheel for Allen. Remember how Teddy Roosevelt became Vice President?
Odds: 10-1
