GOP Businessman to Challenge Lautenberg in New Jersey

As I have stated on numerous occasions, the big concern for the elections of 2008 as far as I'm concerned is the results of the tally in the Senate. Specifically, can the GOP hold on to 40 seats and maintain their ability to rally against cloture? Today brought news that might help the GOP's cause.

Polling over the past several months has indicated a weakness in New Jersey ultra-liberal Frank Lautenberg. Lautenberg, one of the most outspoken anti-gun zealots and tax-and-spenders in the U.S. Senate, is old enough to remember when there were only 13 colonies, and apparently that bothers more than half of his constituents. As I have told many wonks over the past few months, all the GOP needed was someone who could mount a serious challenge and New Jersey could be the surprise of election night.

Today, Andrew Unanue, a successful businessman who has amassed a significant personal fortune, entered the fray for the GOP nomination. Citing the economy as his top priority, Unanue will mount a serious challenge to Lautenberg in a state that it was assumed 12 months ago was safely in the Democrats' column. Unanue - a 40-year-old Hispanic - strikes a great contrast to the 82-year-old, white relic who currently occupies the seat.

New Jersey is now one state to watch through November.
