quote of the day

"A pain management surgeon, Roque said he estimates that the trial and initial loss of patients and other headaches may have personally cost him about $800,000. Ouch." - columnist Agustin Torres, the Political Insider

- The Jersey Journal

quote of the day

"Gov. Chris Christie says he won’t campaign for the Republican gubernatorial candidate in New York because the cause is hopeless: Gov. Andrew Cuomo is ahead by more than 30 points. But he will campaign in New Hampshire, over and over, where the Republican is also trailing by more than 30 points. What’s the reason? It may be that New Hampshire holds the nation’s first presidential primary. It may be that he doesn’t want to mess with Cuomo, who knows where the skeletons are buried at the Port Authority. But one thing is certain: Gov. Straight Talk is spinning again. And it seems to be habit-forming." - columnist Tom Moran

“We lived up to our end of the bargain. He didn’t live up to his end of the deal.” - Ed Connolly, president of the New Jersey Firemen’s Benevolent Association.

quote of the day

"As soon as you step into the lake on foot or in a boat, you're in the state's domain. I feel bad for the snake, and I hope it gets rescued before it dies when it gets cold. It didn't mean to get let out there. This snake should be one thing we can get together on and not worry about party affiliation. Unless the snake's a Democrat." - Republican Mount Arlington Mayor Arthur Ondish

quote of the day

“Clearly President Putin has created the set of circumstances and has supplied the resources … to the rebels so that this tragedy could take place. For me, I think the West, including the [United States], has to have a far more significant response than we’ve seen to date.” - U.S. Sen. Bob Menendez (D-NJ)

- Fox News Sunday

quote of the day

"The slogan 'Building Iowa’s Future' beamed on a projection screen as Terry Branstad, the Republican governor, plodded through a pep-rally speech. But the television crews that crowded into the fairgrounds for the Branstad fundraiser and piled into MJ’s Restaurant in Marion earlier in the day didn’t come to record Branstad’s speech or his every handshake. They came to record Governor Christie’s unofficial coming-out party for the 2016 Republican presidential race." - columnist Charles Stile

- The Bergen Record

quote of the day

“It may be no coincidence that in the year after special interest groups spent a record $41 million independently of parties and candidates, traditional fundraising committees are struggling." - Jeff Brindle, ELEC’s Executive Director

quote of the day

"You have a disgruntled, demoted employee making an allegation. This is a situation where someone comes forward, potentially someone with an ax to grind, and I don't want to get in middle of that when our focus is on the George Washington Bridge investigation." - Assemblyman John Wisniewski (D-19)

quote of the day
