Bon Jovi to rock for Corzine; Dems ready attacks on Christie


Two interesting notes on the governor's race today.

The New York Times is reporting that Gov. Corzine's Democratic allies plan to ramp up attacks on Republican candidate Chris Christie -- during the GOP primary. The idea is to either help conservative Steve Lonegan, whose hard right positions, Democrats believe, might make him an easier opponent in the state's general election, or to simply bang up Christie a bit before he goes toe-to-toe with Corzine.

Corzine, facing only a nominal primary challenge, has tried to stay aloof of the political combat, but his poll numbers have continued to tumble and several surveys have him trailing Christie. A Democratic move to jump into the Republican primary would show just how seriously the party is taking Christie as a threat.

Meanwhile, Corzine may get a boost from Jersey rocker Jon Bon Jovi, who is planning a fund raising concert for the governor in June.
