TRENTON – Senate President Steve Sweeney reiterated after today’s Senate voting session that he is no hurry to publicly decide whether he will run for governor, or for U.S. Senate, or remain where he is.
When asked whether he thought Newark Mayor Cory Booker – who announced today he would not run for governor – would make a good U.S. Senate candidate, Sweeney said, “There is no certainty on who will be the Senate candidate.’’
Sweeney said through a spokesman earlier today that Booker’s decision not to run will have no bearing on his own future, and that no decision will be made before the end of the year.
Earlier this week, Christie received the endorsement of the Laborers International Union of North America, seen by some as a blow to Sweeney, an ironworker by trade.
Today, when asked about LIUNA’s endorsement of Christie, Sweeney said “I was very disappointed, but not surprised.”
That union is headed up by Ray Pocino, who has developed close ties to Christie.
Dissed by Gov. Chris Christie, New York Republican Gubernatorial candidate Rob Astorino said Christie should consider stepping down from his post as chairman of the Republican Governors Assocation.Read More >

"As soon as you step into the lake on foot or in a boat, you're in the state's domain. I feel bad for the snake, and I hope it gets rescued before it dies when it gets cold. It didn't mean to get let out there. This snake should be one thing we can get together on and not worry about party affiliation. Unless the snake's a Democrat." - Republican Mount Arlington Mayor Arthur Ondish- PolitickerNJ
