    Maybe if he loses the primary for Senate, we can replace him with someone better?

    •  Good point (4+ / 0-)

      I don't remember the the PVI is, but it is very high.  this is a very safe democratic district.  However, it is also in the South Jersey Democratic machine area.  My fear is the county bosses will "pick" a nominee.

      It's very safe, and it should have a more liberal representative. His lifetime Progressive Punch score is only about 80%, so it would be hard not to replace him with someone more liberal.

      •  A list of candidates (4+ / 0-)

        From George Norcross:

        On the official Norcross short list:

        Senate Majority Leader Steve Sweeney;
        South Jersey AFL-CIO President Donald Norcross,
        Assembly Democratic Executive Director Bill Castner;
        Democratic strategist Steve Ayscue;
        State Sens. Fred Madden and Dana Redd;
        Assemblymen Louis Greenwald, John Burzichelli and Paul Moriarty;
        Assemblywoman Sandra Love;
        Camden County Clerk Jim Beach;
        Casino Control Commissioner Linda Kassekert;
        former State Sen. Raymond Zane, who had switched to the GOP in 2001 after 28 years as a Democratic Senator and has now switched back;
        Troy Singleton, an aide to Carpenters Union leader Frank Spencer;
        Burlington County Democratic Chairman Rick Perr, who would move into the district to run;
        and Camille Andrews, a Dean at Rutgers-Camden Law School.

        So realistically, the next NJ-01 Congressman is a friend of Norcross. I think the Netroots record against urban party organizations is not all that good. Ask Lipinski.
