He’ll be starting the campaign with by visiting several New Jersey communities:
Christie plans a two-day, nine-stop campaign rollout, starting with a policy speech Wednesday morning in Newark. Later, he’ll greet voters at diners in Hamilton (Mercer County) and Westville. The candidate plans to pick up endorsements and attend a campaign rally on Thursday.
We’ll have word on those endorsements as they make the news.
I do have one criticism of the Christie campaign, though. If they want to win, they should put more content on their campaign site. Gov. Corzine is going to be brutal during this campaign, and Christie will need every advantage.

Until August 1, Bill Russell’s military service prevented him from actively campaigning in the 12th District congressional race. He’s off and running now, though:
The 12th Congressional District Republican candidate, who is attempting to unseat longtime Democratic U.S. Rep. John Murtha, held his first Cambria County campaign event Wednesday.
It was a modest affair on a back porch in Upper Yoder Township. But Russell said he is gaining momentum.
“This campaign has heard from thousands of people over the past few weeks,” he said.
Rep. John Murtha has loaded up this district with earmarked pork projects, leaving many to believe he is unbeatable. However, Bill Russell’s background and experience, combined with Murtha’s slander of the Haditha Marines, may make this race more competitive.
Of course, with your help, you can ensure a GOP win in Pennsylvania’s 12th District. You can donate to Bill Russell’s campaign here.
Washington state gubernatorial candidate and State Sen. Dino Rossi made sure to show up at Seattle’s Seafair parade last Sunday. Who wasn’t there? Why, none other than Gov. Christine Gregoire:
Dino Rossi, Republican candidate for 2008 Washington state governor, was all smiles at the Chinatown Seafair Parade. Notably absent from the event was incumbent Democratic candidate, Gov. Chris Gregoire.
Local businessman Ted Choi carried Rossi signs at the parade. “We just wanted to get our Asian community to understand him,” Choi said. “He had a great time, was very accessible and was well received. There were lots of thumbs up. Dino appreciated all the hard work the Seafair volunteers do for the City of Seattle.”
In contrast to Rossi’s prominent presence at the parade, Gregoire’s absence, in person and in signs, was palpable, leaving some individuals puzzled as to whether she sees the I.D. as a done deal for her campaign or whether she just doesn’t feel the area is important.
Gov. Gregoire shouldn’t assume that she has this election–or the support of any particular group of Washingtonians–all sown up.
Please support Dino Rossi through volunteering or donating. Better yet, do both!
