State Sen. Ray Lesniak's proclamation of his longtime colleague state Sen. (and former Acting Governor) Dick Codey (D-27) as the state's Obi Wan-Kenobi obviously necessitates some context.

I'm really happy to be here in support of him, because I recognize that when you work together, politics becomes secondary and you really have time to focus on government, which is the most important thing." - Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop- PolitickerNJ.com
