NORTHFIELD - Gov. Chris Christie and state Sen. Jim Whelan (D-2) share a common political antagonist in Mayor Lorenzo Langford.
In response to Christie's criticisms of him during Hurricane Sandy, Langford made headlines when he said he wanted to confront the governor "mano a mano."
At his kickoff Wednesday, Whelan said of the comment, "It's unproductive for the city."
Earlier the same day at a Montville Town Hall, Christie bemoaned Atlantic City as one of the "most God-awful, wasteful governments in America," and singled out the mayor for having "no idea what he's doing."
Standing at attention at the head of the room at Whelan's kickoff event here was Atlantic County Freeholder Charles Garrett, who is opposing Langford in the May mayor's contest.
