They came to record Governor Christie’s unofficial coming-out party for the 2016 Republican presidential race." - columnist Charles Stile

quote of the day

"Our friends at PolitickerNJ reported that U.S. Sen. Robert Menendez attended a small gathering of Bergen County Democrats, about 40 people, in Edgewater, Thursday, and during the evening, Menendez announces that he’ll cast his vote for county executive candidate James Tedesco, a Bergen freeholder.
