Chairman Wisniewski's Thanksgiving Statement
(Trenton)- Assemblyman John Wisniewski, Chairman of the New Jersey Democratic State Committee issued the following statement on Thanksgiving:
“Every year, Americans gather together with family and friends on Thanksgiving to celebrate and give thanks.
Last month, a devastating storm hit New Jersey, affecting many of us and our friends and family. While it is hard to feel celebratory when many are still struggling to recover, we still have reason to be thankful. We are thankful for the men and women of our National Guard who are helping those hardest hit by Sandy. We are thankful for those who helped shelter New Jersey’s displaced. We are thankful for Americans across this country who have donated or volunteered with relief organizations to help us get back on our feet. Most of all, we are thankful for our fellow New Jerseyans, who came together in a crisis and will work together rebuild our state even stronger.
I wish the people of New Jersey a safe and Happy Thanksgiving.”

"Gov. Chris Christie says he won’t campaign for the Republican gubernatorial candidate in New York because the cause is hopeless: Gov. Andrew Cuomo is ahead by more than 30 points. But he will campaign in New Hampshire, over and over, where the Republican is also trailing by more than 30 points. What’s the reason? It may be that New Hampshire holds the nation’s first presidential primary. It may be that he doesn’t want to mess with Cuomo, who knows where the skeletons are buried at the Port Authority. But one thing is certain: Gov. Straight Talk is spinning again. And it seems to be habit-forming." - columnist Tom Moran- Star-Ledger
