Max Pizarro of politickernj.com has published a list of likely candidates for Chris Christie to select as Lieutenant Governor.
According to Pizarro, the odds are 3-1 for State Senator Jennifer Beck getting the nod.
The section pertaining to Jennifer Beck reads as follows:
In a post-Sarah Palin world alert to gender balance in public life, the pairing of Christie and up-and-comer Beck appears already to be more than simply fantasy football. Reports of her meeting with Christie last summer prompted U.S. Rep. Frank Pallone (D-Long Branch) to issue a call for the supposedly apolitical then-U.S. Attorney to release all public and private schedules. A tenacious campaigner in Bill Baroni mold but with her own brand of athleticism (she’s a runner), Beck in 2007 drubbed state Sen. Ellen Karcher (D-Monmouth) despite being outspent by more than 5-1.
Others included on the list are State Senator Joe Kyrillos of Monmouth County, 6-1, State Senator Diane Allen of Burlington County, 10-1, Sussex County Assemblywoman Allison McHose, 8-1, State Senator Tom Kean, jr. 12-1, biotech multi millionair businessman John Crowley, 10-1, South Jersey Congressman Frank LoBiondo, 50-1, Christie’s opponent for the Gubernatorial nomination, Assemblyman Richard Merkt comes in at 100-1, State Senator Bill Baroni rightfully makes the list but odds for him are not provided. Other names mentioned include former Burlington County Freeholder, Rev. Aubrey Fenton. At 25-1 Fenton is the only African-American mentioned on the list.
But coming in at 2-1 is BergenCounty’s County Clerk Kathleen Donovan.
We believe the names mentioned above are all respectable choices but in our estimation, none of them bring the level of energy and enthusisasm that Beck brings to the ticket. On top of that, her prproposals for government reforms and fiscally responsible leadership best suit the needs of New Jersey more than anyother choice for lieutenant Governor.
So please take a moment to go to PolitickerNJ.com and defend the selection of State Senator Beck for Lieutenant. sign in and post your comments favoring herand let everyone elese know that the odds may be 3-1, but the people desire is 100% behind Jennifer beck for Lieutenant Governor.
