New Jersey is not "peopled" by former New Yorkers it is just controlled by people in the North East section that want to be New Yorkers. Which is why the rest of us want to let New York state have the little corner of awful and start having representation that actually represents us. As for Christie being better than Corzine. Corzine actually cut the staff of the governors mansion and took no salary. I hated him at the time but compared to Christie he is a saint. And that is saying ALOT considering what a slimeball Corzine is.
