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.”

"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
