Some five dozen Democratic party officials are working hard to get Cory Booker elected to the U.S. Senate seat vacated by the late Frank Lautenberg.
It seems that Democratic Party leaders in New Jersey are abandoning their hopes of finding a more popular politician to take on incumbent governor Chris Christie, and are now coalescing around the only announced candidate.
More than two-thirds of the 1,600 registered New Jersey voters questioned by Quinnipiac University say Christie deserves a second term.
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie says he still loves state Senate President Steve Sweeney despite the Democrat’s assertion that Superstorm Sandy provided political cover for his failed economic policies.
Chris details the cabinet nominations revealed yesterday by President Obama and the excitement that surrounded Alabama Quarterback AJ McCarron’s girlfriend during last night’s national championship game. He also discusses New Jersey Senate President Steve Sweeney’s latest politization of Hurricane Sandy, Senator Pat Toomey’s intentions for raising the debt ceiling, and a brawl at the Cherry Hill Mall.
Local officials in Paulsboro, NJ say they are pushing for more federal support to ensure that the train derailment that happened on Friday never happens again.
Governor Chris Christie says he has “pretty much” settled on his next two nominees to the New Jersey Supreme Court. How well they may fare in the state senate is up for debate.
Sen. Steve Sweeney’s legislation requires oil companies that shut down facilities to hand over any tax appeal proceeds to the state for environmental cleanup.
It’s taken 27 years to get to this point, according to officials, but the goal is to set aside 550,000 acres for farms in the Garden State.
Chris discusses the further dilution of Pennsylvania’s voter ID law, how to interpret recent presidential polling in the state, and New York City high schools giving free contraception to students. He also talks to Tom McGrath from the Philly Post and James Lee, the President of Susquehanna Polling.
Democrat Steve Sweeney, who’s been a longtime official in an ironworkers union, says the NFL’s replacement referees have “made a mockery of the sport” and increased the potential for injuries.
The agency — which already operates the New York area’s three major airports plus bridges and tunnels and the World Trade Center — will look into environmental, financial, and legal issues involved in a possible takeover.
“On Labor Day, the most important thing for labor is to protect themselves,” said Steve Sweeney, president of the New Jersey state senate.
The clock is ticking on the proposed merger between Rutgers-Camden and Glassboro-based Rowan University, part of a plan New Jersey Governor Chris Christie has to improve higher education in the state.
The higher education committees of the New Jersey assembly and state senate got an earful on the highly charged proposal to have Rowan take over Rutgers University’s Camden campus.
