MONROE – Standing in the crowd at Gov. Chris Christie’s Town Hall were 14th Legislative District candidates: Robbinsville Mayor Dave Fried and former Cranbury Mayor Wayne Wittman.
“Not at all,” Fried told PolitickerNJ.com when asked if he and his running mates dread the presence of Christie campaigning here in the 14th – a public sector storm basin.
“We welcome the governor.”
The mayor – running against Assemblyman Wayne DeAngelo (D-Hamilton) and Assemblyman Dan Benson (D-Hamilton) – withdrew his BlackBerry and displayed the following performance numbers for the 14th District…
“New District is 25% new territory
09 Results in New District
Christie: 32241 (49.3%)
Corzine: 28894 (44.2%)
Daggett/Other: 4274 (6.5%)
09 Results in Old District:
Christie: 32807 (47.9%)
Corzine: 31130 (45.5%)
Dagget/Other: 4482 (6.6%)”
“You’ll see Christie beat Corzine by 5.1% in the new district compared to 2.4% in the old D14,” said Ben DeMarzo, the LD 14 Republicans’ campaign manager. “We lost West Windsor and South Brunswick, picked up Robbinsville, East Windsor, Hightstown, and Spotswood.”
Incumbent Democrat state Sen. Linda Greenstein (D-14) romped to victory over Tom Goodwin last year.
