Republicans pick up the other, closer governor’s race. As I said earlier the outcome obviously has important policy implications for the state of New Jersey but even if Corzine had managed to hang on he would have been hanging on despite his unpopularity.

I think you can see from the unexpected closeness in the NYC mayor’s race that an economic catastrophe is not a good time to be an incumbent elected official.
