Could Independent Mayor Bloomberg back Independent for NJ Governor? Ben Smith writes on Politico.com, “Asked if it was possible for Bloomberg to come out for Daggett, the mayor's adviser repeated: ‘Nothing ruled in or out.’”
Smith wrote supporters of both Democratic Incumbent Governor Jon Corzine and Republican challenger Chris Christie have asked for a Bloomberg endorsement. So what would endorsement would make the biggest difference? Smith argued, “…it's not the major party candidates that would receive the biggest boost from (Bloomberg)… it's Chris Daggett, the independent candidate in New Jersey… Popular and well-known in the Garden State's New York suburbs, Bloomberg is the sort of well-known figure who could lend a timely measure of credibility to Daggett's uphill and underfunded campaign.”
Could an independent endorse and independent? Why not?
