August 29, 2009 (Kearny New Jersey) Governor Jon Corzine is now following KOTW on Twitter. In early July, KOTW signed up for Twitter and started to follow both leading candidates for Governor of New Jersey, Chris Christie and Jon Corzine. Christie's campaign almost immediately started following KOTW on Twitter. Corzine's campaign, however, only joined this morning. Maybe they were prompted by KOTW's lamenting this morning on Twitter that Corzine had not joined us. Or was it KOTW pointing out that Corzine is down 11 points in a heavily Democratic state?
