The New York Post has endorsed Republican Christopher Christie for Governor, saying that taxes and spending grew under Gov. Jon Corzine. Christie, the editorial said "stands the best chance of reversing Jersey's global reputation for political sleaze. As a federal prosecutor, he won convictions against more than 130 public officials on corruption charges — never losing a single case."
Independent Christopher Daggett, the newspaper said, would "cut property taxes only by hiking other taxes and tolls."
"No wonder two key Jersey papers, The Home News Tribune of East Brunswick and The Courier News of Bridgewater, back Christie over both Corzine and Daggett," the Post said.
