LAVALLETTE – Gov. Chris Christie today jabbed at Associate Barry Albin of the state Supreme Court over the justice’s remarks at the annual conference of the State Bar Association in Atlantic City.

Christie famously banished Justice John Wallace from the court in 2010 instead of re-upping him, politically motivated decision, Albin suggested.
The governor punched back at the chief justice this morning.Read More >

The state's highest elected Democrat had harsh words last night for the presumptive party gubernatorial nominee, her top lieutenant and the new chairman of the state party.
Senate President Steve Sweeney lashed out at Democratic gubernatorial candidate Barbara Buono for her choice of Assemblyman Jason O'Donnell to head the state party.
