Chris Daggett Wins 3rd NJ Gubernatorial Debate

Chris Daggett wins the 3rd governor debate making it a clean sweep for all three gubernatorial debates in the 2009 NJ Election for Governor.

Corzine said he wont’ cut taxes and stated his plan is more of the same, literally. He said  does have a plan, the one he already has in place. Perhaps someone should let him in on the secret that NJ voters are not happy with his current plan.

Christie continued to offer no details about his budget plan. Christie spent most of his time bickering.  Corzine and Christie went back and forth at each other with more negative attacks on each others character. Christie took a good shot a Corzine’s plan of more of the same, saying someone should inform Corzine that voters are dissatisfied with his current plan

Mean while Daggett continued to tout his plans pointing out that both the Democratic and Republican Parties have made a mess out of the state and he is the only candidate with a plan to get the state out of the mess.

Daggett also hung both Corzine and Christie and Christie out to dry when asked about how to fight corruption. He said to Corzine and Christie the best way to fight corruption is lead ead by example and pointed out that both Christie and Corzine are engaging in illegal campaign financing and pay to play. It was so bad that neither Christie or Corzine could defend their actions. Instead Corzine acknowledged that he and Christie where engaging and such actions and said they need to stop.

Daggett then went on to call for an investigation into billions of dollars that have been stolen from the NJ State Schools Construction Fund.

Daggett opened the debate by pointing out that he is now polling in the low 20’s, which is a psychological barrier that may convince many voters that a vote for Daggett is not a wasted vote.

In his closing argument Daggett called upon all voters to stand up against the corrupt and broken two-party system and tell them its time to end politics as usual.
