Jersey City mayoral candidate Steve Fulop today said he hopes to find "common ground" with Assemblyman Sean Connors, (D-33) who earlier today withdrew support for Fulop's opponent, Mayor Jerry Healy.
“I am looking forward to having discussions with the Assemblyman to determine where we have common ground and how we can work together going forward for the residents of Jersey City,” Fulop said.
And though Fulop was quick to court Connors, he also wasted no time piling on to Connors' scathing criticism of Healy's performance post Hurricane Sandy.
“We’ve been fielding calls from many of Mayor Healy’s most loyal supporters who are coming to realize that he is no longer a viable candidate," Fulop said in a statement. "His abysmal performance in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy combined with his candidate’s stunning loss in the Ward F special election has exposed a weakness in his armor.”

"Assembly Speaker Vincent Prieto, a Hudson County Democrat, is balking. He claimed Tuesday that members of his caucus are divided over the measure and that his house is in no real rush – besides, even if enacted this year, the reforms would not take effect until 2017, he said. And with the growing belief that Christie could skip town to run for president, some Democrats are not eager to give him another talking point for his résumé. Christie’s plans to stump for Republican candidates in New Hampshire later Thursday only fuel that suspicion." - columnist Charles Stile- The Bergen Record
