Comment to Abe
I wrote this comment on Honest Abe's blog, but I thought it was worth reposting:

This might have something to do with that thing about getting Romney delegates on the June primary ballot.
I think that issue is over with unless Romney un-suspends his campaign, which isn't going to happen.
I wouldn't mind seeing Kyrillos enter the Senate race, just for the public scrutiny factor.
Keep in mind, I was barely 22 years old and two months on the job as a reporter when I dug up that info on the Matawan-Aberdeen Train Station project.
What do you think a seasoned opposition researcher is going to find?
IMHO, the APP has been relatively gentle with Kyrillos over the years. Understandably so: they're unwilling to go after Republicans in the Statehouse unless absolutely necessary, since Statehouse Dems have shown no means of being able to restrain themselves from spending.
But if any serious ethical questions or conflicts of interest are brought up during the course of a statewide campaign, I think the APP will be the ones to jump up and cut him down. They like to tend to their own backyard.
