State Sen. Bill Baroni (R-Hamilton) said the Christie campaign realized they won the race at about 9pm, when they learned they won Woodbridge – a critical town in Middlesex county.
“We knew early when we got the call that we won Woodbridge,” he said “It was towns like Woodbridge, Sayreville and Hamilton – these blue collar Reagan Democratic towns that went overwhelmingly for Chris Christie. Their margins were amazing. Jamesburg – democratic towns.”
"Republican towns delivered huge numbers, and blue collar Democratic towns swung back into the Republican column.”
It's not that the numbers added up to an automatic Corzine victory, Baroni said, but it showed the Republicans won the message.
"It was emblamatic," he said.
