Joe Piscopo is best known for his work as a comedic actor and talented impersonator during the 1980s golden age of Saturday Night Live, but from what I’ve been able to gather, Save Jerseyans, the straight-talking, unapologetically politically incorrect Passaic native isn’t joking about his interest in a run at governor next year.
I’m told by reliable sources – the people who know people, if you catch my drift – that Piscopo is 100% in for the 2017 New Jersey Republican Primary for the right to succeed Chris Christie.
There are mixed reports concerning what kinds of formal steps he’s taken thus far, but if we’re being honest, that’s an entirely different question from whether he’s made up his mind. It is only November after all. He’s got time to make a big splash in New Jersey politics and maybe, just maybe, upset the apple cart.
