Ugh! McGreevey Governor-Elect in NJ

The Associated Press reports that Jim McGreevey won the gubernatorial election in New Jersey by a decisive margin over Brett Schundler.

This is not so much a McGreevey victory as it is a defeat for the establishment in the New Jersey State Republican Party. After years of debacles like the proposed Newark Arena and the financing of EZPass, who can blame middle-of-the-road voters in New Jersey for voting for McGreevey or staying home? Combine this with the fact that many diehards in the State Republican Party never got over the fact that Schundler defeated their candidate, Bob Franks, and you have the recipe for disaster.

For our money, Schundler was the only reasonable choice. But, he would not have been able to break through the status quo in Trenton. We will surely experience frustration with New Jersey's State Government over the next four years, but we hope that frustration will contribute to a more complete purge of the governing class in future elections.
