It was a small event, just 40 to 50 people in a room honoring Bergen County Democratic Chairman Lou Stellato, but U.S. Sen. Bob Menendez (D-NJ) showed up in Edgewater and declared his formal support for Bergen County executive candidate James Tedesco.
He did more than that, in fact.
"I'll be voting for him," said Menendez, the Hudson County bareknuckle political brawler now formally a resident of Bergen County.
Menendez's admission of Bergen residency intent on voting for Tesdesco - who's in a November general election against incumbent Republican County Executive Kathe Donovan - shocked some people in the room, according to a source.

"Christie’s method for coping with scandal has been more complicated. In January, the seemingly-local issue of lane closings on the George Washington Bridge, which created a massive traffic jam in the Hudson River town of Fort Lee, became one of national interest when it was revealed that one of Christie’s closest staffers had ordered them—for what looked like political retribution against a Democratic mayor. The scandal was quickly dubbed 'Bridgegate,' and unfortunately for Christie, it played into his reputation as a bully. Christie's response was to act unlike himself: humble." - Olivia Nuzzi- The Daily Beast
