BULLETIN: Associated Press has called the NJ Governors race for Christie at 10:07PM.
It sure looks that way. At 9:45PM with nearly 60% of the vote in, Christie is up 50% to 43% over Corzine. Daggett is polling below 6%.
UPDATE (from Dan): Everything I’m reading suggests Christie may pull this off. I’m going to be doing some number crunching in second, but here’s just one piece of encouraging news from Jim Geraghty:
This looks big: With 100 percent of precincts reported, Republican Chris Christie has won New Jersey’s Gloucester County by about 2800 votes, a county that Christie Whitman lost in her 1997 reelection bid.
UP-UPDATE (from Dan): Ok, at 7:12 PST, 10:12 PST, I concluded some number crunching based on some exit poll data and came up with Christie ending up with 49.43% of the vote. That means, if Daggett holds at 5 points, the Republican wins by a comfortable margin.
Obama carried this county by 12 percent last year.
