A few months ago I wrote this diary, silly me. I was surprised at the comments section, again silly me. But I thought the point of being a Democrat was to elect Democrats. The point of a county and state Democratic party was to elect our Democratic candidates.
I still think it's a WTF moment and a slap in the face to all the candidates, the members and volunteers in county parties for the county chair of the Democratic party to endorse the opposing republican candidate. What one does in the privacy of the voting booth is one's own business but when you accept the chair of a Democratic party it goes with the job description that the chair supports the candidate that won the Democratic primary.
So here is my attempt again to say that Buono has a good chance of winning NJ if Democratic leaders will support her. And it's not just me. There must be other silly people out there.
Christie is a terrible governor with a terrible record. Buono is a great candidate. With some work, she can pull it off. The Democratic party is supposed to help her campaign. She's their candidate. They shouldn't work against her. If we don't run and fight for each seat, we will never win.
