Vote or Die: The Republicans Take Over NY and NJ in Political Race

- By Bossip Staff Categories: Bolitics, News

The voting day for NJ governors and NYC Mayors took place yesterday and while it was a very close race in both states, the Republicans won the race.  What happened is the question most Democrats are asking.

With the President visiting and showing support to both New York and New Jersey during the campaign,  it was a sure win in the minds of most Democrats and their supporters, but that was not the case.  NYC Democratic candidate, Bill Thompson, lost by 5% to his opponent Mayor Bloomberg, while Republican New Jersey candidate, Chris Christie took the race for NJ governor in a close call to Democrat Jon Corzine.

Most democratic officials are saying that they could have gotten more support from endorsers and people in the democratic party to help give Thompson and Corzine a better chance in the race.

    Bloomberg is and independent not Republican, and A democrat won the NT 23 district. The sleezy democrate that lost in NJ lost for that reason the corruption and taxes. I’m a democrat but i’m sick and tired of people trying to make a big deal out of something that’s really not. For 8 years in Va we had a republican president and a Democrat for Governor no one made a big deal then so why now. Local politics is local politics people voted based on what was going on in their state not Washington.

  • Why oh Why?!

    @Samantha and drenk

    Just wondering can you give some examples of Corzine’s sleaziness and corruptness? Not trying to be funny, just want the truth.

    @ why oh why

    Just hours after Bergen County’s longtime Democratic machine boss, Joseph Ferriero, was convicted Thursday on three federal felony corruption counts — which could land him in prison for 20 years — New Jersey’s governor proudly defended having written him personal checks totaling nearly a half-million dollars.

    for someone who always claimed to be fighting corruption, how the F**K could he miss the pay offs and illicit trade in body parts that was takin place right under his nose!

    what really irked me was when he said he’d give some of his own money to help rutgers build a bigger stadium BUT that would mean more money for football and less money for academics. F**K football, football team didnt help me find a job, study for finals, write papers, professors did!!!

    Of course thay won…. They don’t want anyone messing up their money. The rich gets richer and the poor gets poorer. Let’s see how many more expensive trips and private plane rides they will be taking.

  • LET MESAYSOMETHING

    I tell you what happened. The people who needed to vote didn’t vote and then they wonder why things are so bad!!!

    The people have spoken – we hope, which is all you can do these days – is hope it was legit. I don’t trust either party to stand by any of their promises. Democrat/Republican – neither are worthy in my eyes.

  • tg

    As for people not voting – but always complaining – what else is old as the hills.

  • NYC Gal

    I didn’t vote for Bloomberg because he seems to bossy for me. When he went to the council and not to the people to have a third term for NYC Mayors to run again, I lost all respect for him. We the people in NYC should have decided if NYC Mayors should be allowed to run again.

    @ tg

    you know the US is the only “democracy” with only 2 parties, how is it the voice of the people when theres only 2 choices

  • imrightdammit

    And all this “Change” Obama promised??? He’s just continuing the same old democratic political machine with Pelosi, Clinton, and the big corporations and lobbyists running the show!

  • white male

    I heard a lot of people are moving out of New York and New Jersey because the taxes are too high.
