Jersey Jeopardy

November 19, 2006

Which Democratic presidential hopeful lost the primary after making a disparaging remark about New Jersey? Can you name the first governor of New Jersey who was not only called a bastard, but actually was a bastard?

These and other questions were on tap during the recent game of Political Jeopardy staged by the Eagleton Institute of Politics during the celebration of its 15oth anniversary. Apparently, state Senator Leonard Lance (a Hunterdon County Republican) owned the game.

Demonstrating, I guess, that there is one political game Garden State Republicans actually know how to play straight.

    Hey, I knew the William Franklin one. I knew it because I live in Frankling Township, which was named for him.
