30 Issues: New Jersey

Monday, October 11, 2004 - 09:15 AM

For years New Jersey has been considered a solid blue state, the state legislature is Democratic, the Governor is a Democrat and the two Senators are Democrats. But a funny thing happened a few months ago- George Bush was polling rather competitively in the Garden State. The Republicans feel strongly about Bush's chances in New Jersey that they sent Laura Bush to campaign there and today Dick Cheney makes a stop. Democrats have been forced to regroup and spend money and time in a place which had been a given for Democrats for years.

What are the two candidates talking about in New Jersey? The economy, healthcare or homeland security?

So what does George Bush have to offer to New Jersey? And what issues should Kerry bring up to turn this race around?
