JENNIFER BECK

In a post-Sarah Palin world alert to gender balance in public life, the pairing of Christie and up-and-comer Beck appears already to be more than simply fantasy football. Reports of her meeting with Christie last summer prompted U.S. Rep. Frank Pallone (D-Long Branch) to issue a call for the supposedly apolitical then-U.S. Attorney to release all public and private schedules. A tenacious campaigner in Bill Baroni mold but with her own brand of athleticism (she's a runner), Beck in 2007 drubbed state Sen. Ellen Karcher (D-Monmouth) despite being outspent by more than 5-1.
Odds: 3-1
