Sources: Corzine will wait until after Obama event to pick LG

The Inside Edge respectfully disagrees with an Asbury Park Press report that Gov. Jon Corzine will announce his pick for Lt. Governor "to coincide with the visit of President Barack Obama to New Jersey Thursday." While that may have been the conventional wisdom ten days ago, it now seems that Corzine will not announce his running mate until after the Obama visit. But Democratic sources say that reality TV star Randal Pinkett is the front runner and that if he accepts the nomination, an announcement could come on Friday. Final decisions have not yet been made, and it could easily turn out that the APP is right and this website is wrong. Stay tuned!
