Chris Christie, the U.S. attorney in New Jersey, has announced that he's leaving his post on Dec. 1. All signs indicate that he'll be gearing up for a gubernatorial run.
Christie is a Republican who has successfully prosecuted more than a hundred state and local officials, including some very big fish. He's routinely accused of targeting pols for partisan reasons, but his perfect record -- no one he's indicted has walked -- suggests he has uncovered real malfeasance.
At any rate, his efforts have been rewarded with poll numbers suggesting he's running neck and neck with Gov. Jon Corzine before the race even begins. Corzine, of course, may skip reelection if he's appointed Treasury secretary or some boffo administration job like that.
Either way, it should be a fascinating race. New Jersey is a state that seems deeply sick of politicians -- and the reining powers are all Democrats. And yet, even when presented with flawed Democratic candidates, New Jersey has remained strictly blue in statewide races for years.
