N.J. Republicans spin Bush win for governor race

TRENTON -- New Jersey Republican leaders tried yesterday to translate the re-election of President Bush, who lost in New Jersey, into momentum for next year's gubernatorial race. Despite not taking the erstwhile Democratic state, the GOP leaders relished that Bush's New Jersey deficit -- 16 percentage points in 2000 -- had been cut to a 6 percentage point gap Tuesday. "We took what was supposed to be a romp for Kerry," said Sen. Joseph M. Kyrillos Jr., R-Monmouth, "and made it a very competitive, single-digit race."
