    Could it be the romp Mr. DiBlasi sees the Democrats will have over the Republicans in Marlboro?? There are many problems in Marlboro that began with Republican leadership–or lack thereof–in Marlboro. If I recall, the Asbury Park Press ran an article about the Scannapieco Corruption years, and its lasting impact on Marlboro.

    I think with Christie’s popularity at a new low, Republicans throughout the county cannot take any election for granted.

    This is not news. Word is that he called it quits after just 2 weeks and the Republicans tried to keep this quiet till after the so called primary election.

    Word has it that he was fed up with the fact that Gore, the Deans and Marshall were all over him trying to brow beat him with their version of history.

    He is a smart guy and refused to buy what they were selling.

    It will be interesting to see what other ethinic group they will try and tap in order to garner support. They are running out of groups.
