Unfortunately, this may be why Rutgers has to give up the Camden campus. With Republicans and South Jersey Democrats voting as a bloc with Central Jersey Democrats already on board, then there's no way to gum up the UMDNJ merger in Ne Brunswick. It simply has to happen, and it's sad to see Cory Booker descending into regional parochialism over the state's collective welfare. In that respect, he's just as bad as all of the worst Essex County politicians throughout history.
