New York: GOP Poised to Pick Up Gillibrand’s House Seat

This could well be a Republican pickup, though its national implications are limited, for three reasons. (1) It’s a Republican-leaning district. Gillibrand won in 2006 only because of late-breaking scandal news about the Republican incumbent. (2) Out parties often win special House elections in the first year of an administration. (3) Tedisco is a well-known politician in metro Albany, which includes most of the district, while Murphy has some tax problems.

New Jersey Environmentalists Turn on Each Other

But a provision of the proposed law extending similar rights to owners of preserved farms has angered major open-space groups. The issue is sensitive in a state that has spent billions of dollars on popular open-space programs designed to slow sprawling development in rural and wooded areas.

The League of Municipalities also has voiced concern that the rush to renewable energy may go too far in limiting local officials’ ability to regulate the new land use.

The controversy has divided the environmental community and ensnared Gov. Jon Corzine’s agriculture-secretary designee before he is even sworn in. But with President Obama, Corzine and others beating the drum on clean energy, the measure appears certain to pass.

Palin Leads Primary Poll, Huckabee 2nd

Twenty-nine percent of Republicans questioned in a CNN/Opinion Research Corp. survey released Friday say they are most likely to support Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin for the next GOP presidential nomination. Right behind the 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee, and well within the poll’s margin of error, is former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee. Twenty-six percent of those questioned say they are most likely backing Huckabee, the surprise winner of the 2008 Iowa GOP caucuses. Twenty-one percent of Republicans polled say they most likely would support former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, another GOP hopeful from the last campaign who may run again. Nine percent say they would probably back Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, who is considered a rising star in the GOP.Source: CNN
