All in all this election has produced some up's and down's for the conservative cause. Again each and every one of these issues are local in nature and are really nothing more than a barometer of how each of these regions may vote in the 2002 elecions.

All that New Jersey proved is that you can't win if the head of your party and the party establishment actively campaign against you, and support your opponent.
On the brighter side, a conservative is planning to challenge Rep. Rodney Frelinghuysen, a liberal Republican. (Schundler won his district, 56-43, so it shouldn't be a stretch -- the incumbent factor will be more of a problem than the ideology factor).
Hopefully, if we can win this small race, we can build a foundation (brick by brick, piece by piece) for a Schundler victory in 2005.

Let's start out in New Jersey where Brett Schundler lost. This really was a very sad deal, made even more sad by the fact that the N.J. G.O.P. choose not to rally around him.
Made even sadder by the fact that Schundler's loss could easily have been prevented by simply taking a few minutes to phone in to the Howard Stern Show. This was a No-Brainer and I warned weeks before the election about the consequences of failing to seek Howard's endorsement.

I was just taking a look at all the responses form the thread and LOL was the first thing that popped into my mind with #2.
We'll have to see how all these things come out over the next several years. The reamrk that was attibuted to Warnerwas from an ad that was reported on in an article that was posted here. As to Howard Stern. I don't know what he could have done to help Schundler win. I don't think it would have done any good. Maybe our side will have better luck in 2005.
