If Gov. Jon Corzine wins a second term next Tuesday, New Jersey voters will have two places to thank: Goldman Sachs and Chris Daggett campaign headquarters.
Goldman Sachs is where Corzine made most of the astonishing $24 million he has plowed into his re-election campaign (compared with the $9 million spent by his Republican opponent, former U.S. Attorney Chris Christie).
And Daggett is the third-party candidate who's never been higher then 20 percent in the polls but whose candidacy may very well determine the outcome of the race.
Newt Gingrich, a Republican, was speaker of the United States House of Representatives from 1995 to 1999. He is the author of the new novel "Treason" (Center Street, October 11) and co-author, with his wife Callista Gingrich, of "Rediscovering God in America: Reflections on the Role of Faith in Our Nation's History and Future" (Center Street, May 17, 2016).
