Environmental Groups turn their backs on Corzine

Another from PolitickerNJ.com:

In his 2005 gubernatorial bid, then-U.S. Sen. Jon Corzine had the whole-hearted support of New Jersey’s biggest environmental groups, who called his campaign platform “one of the most comprehensive” ever outlined by a gubernatorial candidate.

“We were the first to publicly endorse him,” said New Jersey Sierra Club Director Jeff Tittel.

This time around, that is far from certain.

“I think Corzine has aggravated and frustrated the environmental community at large,” said Tittel. “I think that in a lot of ways, peoples’ patience has kind of run out, partially because a lot of things that he committed to doing really haven’t gotten done. Part of it has also been that a lot of little bad things have happened.”
