"There can be a new vitalization of the Republican Party, a concept where we extol the virtues of good business and fiscal policy and we fight the deficit and we don't advocate the printing of money in obscene amounts just to cover our debts. We have to rein in entitlements."Yes, there's a whole host of issues he sucks on, namely race-baiting, affirmative action quotas. He's wishy-washy on guns. But this is New Jersey after all. It'd be hard to get any sort of principled Republican out of the Garden State.
"I believe in immigration reform. I believe in gay rights and gay marriage. I believe in choice. Not obscenely, but I believe in Roe vs. Wade," he told the hosts of "Fox and Friends."

Note - This WOULD NOT be for the Bob Menendez seat. This would be for retiring Senator Frank Lautenberg's spot. With Christie set to appoint a Republican to fill the Menendez seat once it is vacated, and a Geraldo win for the other seat, we could be looking at two Republicans from deeply blue New Jersey in the United States Senate. Believe it!
