Morris County Republican Senators Tony Bucco and Joe Pennacchio decried Senate Democrats unprecedented political attempt today to avoid the democratic process and try to unseat Acting Morris County Prosecutor Frederic Knapp.
“Once again, the majority party is trying to deny a qualified nominee from serving the people as a prosecutor or judge strictly for political reasons,” Bucco said. “They are in denial that Chris Christie has been elected New Jersey’s governor and are attempting everything they can to prevent Gov. Christie and this Senate from exercising our constitutional duties for New Jersey residents.”
“Senate Democrats have once again proved they could care less about the democratic process and the New Jersey Constitution,” Pennacchio added. “They have lost any credibility to even mention constitutionality, as they ignore an obligation to confirm a full state Supreme Court and baselessly ignore the massive backlog of judges, prosecutors and other gubernatorial appointments.”

"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
