Lou Dobbs Mulls Run for Governor

Several Republican sources in the state told the Newark Star-Ledger that the host of CNN's "Lou Dobbs Tonight" has inquired about the steps he would need to take if he decides to toss his hat in the ring.

Reached by telephone at his farm in Sussex County on Wednesday, Dobbs did not deny that he is mulling a run, saying only: “I’m just not going to comment.”

Back in January, Dobbs told the Wall Street Journal it was doubtful he would enter politics, but added: “I cannot say ‘never.’”

Dobbs registered as a Republican in Sussex County in 1991, then switched to independent in 2006. State Republican chairman Tom Wilson told the Star-Ledger that if Dobbs is seriously interested in running for governor, “the first thing he should do is register as a Republican.”

Incumbent Gov. Jon Corzine, a Democrat, has an approval rating of only 38 percent, according to a new Quinnipiac University poll, and 52 percent of respondents disapprove of his performance on the job.
