Quote of the day

"I think it's going to be fine. I don't take this personally. Some people in my party agree with me, some don't. Senator Cardinale is very gracious by supporting me tonight, and [Bergen County GOP Chairman] Bob [Yudin], of course, is celebrating Hannukah, so I don't expect him to be here tonight." - Bergen County Executive Kathe Donovan, at her campaign launch last night.

Quote of the day

“When people asked my opinion I gave it to them and that was the extent of my involvement. The fact is that both Tom Kean Jr. and Kevin O’Toole are both good friends of mine and important members of the state Senate. I would be willing to work with either of them as leaders of the Senate minority and I’ve already been working with Sen. Kean since his re-election by his caucus and I’ll continue to work with him as long as he remains the minority leader.” - Gov. Chris Christie

Quote of the day

"Ramos' associates also wondered if a reported shift to Team Jeffries by Bill Payne, deputy chief of staff to County Executive Joe DiVincenzo and nephew of U.S. Rep. Donald Payne (D-10), as well as perhaps former Newark Mayor Sharpe James, would leave their candidate looking like an exposed, plucked bird in the run-up to the May 2014 election."

Quote of the day

“All across America, Republican governors are doing what Washington can't: getting the big things done to move our country forward,” said Christie. “We’re leading with conviction, making tough decisions and getting the job done in our states. I’m honored to serve as Chairman of the RGA at this important time, and will work tirelessly over the next year to provide our governors and candidates with the resources they need to win.” - Gov. Chris Christie, newly elected chairman of the Republican Governors Association (RGA).

Quote of the day

"I run every race like I'm losing, and that's how you win. We went from two to five down, to five to two up on the freeholder board. That all happened with a hurricane and with a 50,000-vote plurality by Chris Christie in Bergen." - Bergen County Democratic Committee Chairman Lou Stellato

Quote of the day

"The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us—that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion—that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain—that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom—and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth." - President Abraham Lincoln

Quote of the day

“The new agenda is charter schools. It’s a profit-making business. $500 million will not be in our hands. The school board is an advisory board. We are not going to tell the governor to unleash the dollars. Don’t be fooled. It’s not abracadabra. It’s politics.” - Paterson Mayor Jeff Jones
