If the Dems can't win this year...

With the APP launching an investigative piece a week before the election, they are posturing for a Democratic victory. My prediction is that the APP will wind up endorsing the Democratic freeholder candidates.

Whatever stutter steps the Democratic campaign initially had, the trickle-down Democratic-sweep effect everyone's predicting this year coupled with the generous boost Gannett has been giving the Monmouth Dems pretty much sets the Democrats up for a win in the county. Then again, that's what everyone said about last year too, so I could be wrong.

I think it's kind of cheap that the APP is putting Anna Little in a position to have to answer for the actions of other freeholders. But then again, the other freeholders made a HUGE, boneheaded move by reappointing Malcolm Carton.

Let me hear your 2006 predictions, folks.

i actually anticipate that the app will endorse peters instead of scarano.

for all the paper's antagonism toward malcolm carton, they seem to coddle/enable peter carton and ignore all the obscene waste that goes on in middletown (banfield building anyone?)

i mean rosemarie actually said "build it and they will come" in reference to the 3x over-budget middletown arts center and the app just let it slide. that comment grates me much more than the overblown "let them eat steak" scandal that was built around stominski.

but i'm still predicting a democrat win this year. maybe not a huge one, but certainly a comfortable one.
