Independent Christopher Daggett – whose poll numbers have dropped a bit from the peak a couple weeks ago – does not want to even entertain the talk of not winning tonight until the votes are counted.
“I don’t know what people are thinking out there. I can tell you this: there are an awful lot of undecided people out there. Even at 3:00 in the afternoon, people who have not voted yet are at work struggling between what they really want to do and they know is the right thing to do, but have been led to believe they should use their vote against something rather than for something,” he said.
Daggett started the morning in Metro Park in Edison, went home to Basking Ridge to vote, did an interview on MSNBC and campaigned during the lunch hour in Fort Lee. His campaign will gather later tonight back at the Dolce Basking Ridge Hotel.
“I would say the really encouraging thing for me in this campaign… is the number of people who told me they weren’t going to vote at all until I got into the race, and they are going to vote now because I’m in it,” he said.
