Calling him "a decent man with a laudable set of goals for his state., the New York Times has endorsed Gov. Jon Corzine for re-election.
"Mr. Corzine is hardly the perfect politician. Most New Jersey voters find him astonishingly inarticulate, and his credentials as a former co-chairman of Goldman Sachs do not seem as impressive as they did before the financial meltdown in 2008," the editorial wrote. "He has poured lots of his personal wealth into this race, far too much of it for biting – and sometimes juvenile – attacks on Mr. Christie. In his second term, we would like to see him back away from the state's unions."
