TRENTON — New Jersey funny man Joe Piscopo said Tuesday he will consider running for governor if voters just ask, marking another playhouse-to-statehouse switch pursued by marquee names such as Ronald Reagan and Arnold Schwarzenegger.
"I am flattered most of all that people in the state that I love . . . think I could be the guy to represent them," Piscopo said in an interview.
"All I am concerned about is doing what’s right for New Jersey," Piscopo said. "If there were enough people that said, "Run, Joe, run! We are so ticked off. You’ve got to be there for us,’ then I would consider it very seriously."
…"Abortion? I don’t think the government has any right to tell a woman what to do with her body. . . . And I am a church-going Catholic," Piscopo said. [Source]
Catholic? That’s strange, I always figured him for an ePISCOPOlian.
