    Interesting statement from Palin - and just 48 hours before the Tuesday election.

    Pushing Independents toward Christie vs Dagget, and thus ensuring the end of the Corzine regime in New Jersey...



    NJ’s Governor’s Race: Candidate Plays Loose With Facts?

    Today at 9:43am

    Despite what candidate Chris Daggett is claiming, I have never contacted him or his campaign. I have never asked him to drop out of the NJ Governor’s race. Now, if a politician is going to play loose with facts like this, the electorate needs to know it.

    So, to the good people of New Jersey, please know that Daggett’s claims are false. I’ve never even suggested he should drop out of the race. But, come to think of it…

    - Sarah Palin


    Sarah Palin: NJ’s Governor’s Race: Candidate Plays Loose With Facts? | Facebook


    Republicans today accused the state Democratic Party of trying to trick GOP voters into casting their ballots for the independent candidate in an effort to aid Democratic Gov. Jon Corzine, who is seeking re-election Tuesday.

    Sen. Joseph Kyrillos (R-Monmouth), the chairman of Republican Chris Christie's campaign, told a Monmouth County crowd that "Jon Corzine's Democratic State Committee" has been making automated calls to people urging them to vote against Christie and go for the independent, "that guy Daggett or whatever his name is."

    Chris Daggett, a Republican turned independent, has won a lot of attention during the campaign and is perceived by experts to be more dangerous to Christie's chances than Corzine's.

    Chris Daggett, a Republican turned independent, has won a lot of attention during the campaign and is perceived by experts to be more dangerous to Christie's chances than Corzine's.

    "This Corzine campaign is scared to death," Kyrillos said.

    A recording of the automated phone call was played for The Star-Ledger tonight by Marsha Harlan of Bridgewater, a Republican who said she received it on her answering machine today.

    Sarah Palin probably did tell Daggert to drop out of the race because she thinks that her ego is so big that anyone will follow what she says.

    By the way Sinatra, using that facebook blog still? Pathetic. :lol:

    The first obviously. You didn't mention Palin directly in the second did you?

    My evidence of this? Have you been paying attention for the last year? :eusa_eh:

    Though according to a spokesman, Daggert only got the impression. So take that as you will.

    Why would Dagget make a false claim? He is a politician you know. It's what they do. It's equally possible that some one claiming to be Palin tried to pull a fast one on him.

    Democratic state chairman, Joe Cryan, flatly denied the state committee was behind the calls.
