New York Times praising independent Gubernatorial candidate Chris Daggett in a new article titled, “Independent Candidate Stirs Up the Governor’s Race in New Jersey”.
The Daggett campaign was once again given the Cinderella moniker at the start of the article written by David M. Halbfinger.
He later writes, “Mr. Daggett’s dry talk of substance has filled an enormous vacuum. Mr. Corzine, elected on a promise to use his Wall Street savvy to fix the state’s fiscal problems, instead swung and missed on several big initiatives… Meanwhile, Mr. Christie squandered a huge advantage in the polls by refusing to say how he would fix the state’s vexing problems… Mr. Daggett’s rivals have said so little about how they would tackle New Jersey’s taxes, deficits and unemployment that Mr. Daggett is being greeted at times like a Jimmy Stewart character in a Frank Capra film.”
The article quoted a New Jersey Democrat that had never head of Daggett prior to the October 1st Gubernatorial debate. Now 12-days later, she has four Daggett campaign signs at her home.
