Former Goldman Sachs bigwig Jon Corzine was elected the new Governor of NJ last night, beating Republican Doug Forrester. The two millionaires viciously dueled on TV, each creating a more disturbing negative ad after the other, with Forrester reaching the pinnacle by using Corzine's ex-wife's quotes in a NY Times article against him. (At least both candidates were millionaires with millionaire funds to make these ads that basically spell out why people hate politicians.) Corzine won, 53% to Forrester's 44%, and Corzine appeared victoriously to the tunes of Bon Jovi! Gothamist can only hope that somehow Corzine does better than his elected predecessor, Jim McGreevey.
