Whitman: Corzine ‘quietly’ helping Daggett in bid to split independent vote

Jon Corzine is pushing independents who don’t like him to vote for Christopher Daggett, former Gov. Christine Todd Whitman told Fox Business News today.

“He’s the one who I think could make a difference. The Corzine people want to keep his numbers at 12. They figure if they keep his numbers at 12, they’ll win, because they’ve been absolutely unable to move Jon Corzine’s numbers up,” Whitman said. “He cannot get out of the 40’s. He is not popular, and they can’t win if they run it on just Corzine himself, so they’ve got to go after Chris Christie and try and drag him down. Now they’re urging people, quietly, to support Chris Daggett because by doing that they figure they’ll split the independent vote.”

Whitman predicted that Republican Christopher Christie would beat Corzine on November 3.
