TRENTON – Senate President Steve Sweeney, Senator Raymond J. Lesniak, Senator Jim Whelan and Senator Jeff Van Drew today sent a letter to Governor Chris Christie urging him to sign legislation, sponsored by Senator Lesniak and Assemblyman John Burzichelli, that would legalize Internet gaming in New Jersey, bringing the state’s casino industry into the 21st Century while realizing hundreds of millions of dollars in tax revenue for New Jersey.

Lew Candura, the veteran chair of the Morris County Democratic Committee, will retire this year and back the organization's executive director, Chip Robinson, to serve as his successor.Read More >
