  •  NJ-07 is worth trying again (1+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:
    Ann T Bush

    The eastern half of the district is urban and liberal, the western half is rural and conservative. Leonard Lance seems like a nice guy who is unfortunately on the wrong side of the political divide. He campaigned as an "independent Republican", but he voted with his party against the stimulus. If we find a Democrat from Union County who already has political achievements, and uses the stimulus as a campaign issue, then we have a chance at winning. But if he gets reelected in 2010 then he will be as entrenched as Chris Smith in NJ-04, and then all we can do is draw him into a more conservative district after the census.
