Welcome to South Jersey: Kean sees opportunity where Dems delight in bipartisanship with Christie (with video)

SOUTH JERSEY – That GOP squall Senate Minority Leader Tom Kean (R-21) wants would hit down here amid the inlets, sand stretches and docks on Nov. 5th, or so it would appear, but for Democratic incumbents’ staunch messaging of bipartisanship with Gov. Chris Christie, distinct name brands and shock and awe independent expenditure artillery.

 While Christie has stayed away from making public appearances with battleground Republicans in key South Jersey firefights, Kean has run headlong into South Jersey’s throne room and challenged the dominant figure on the landscape: Senate President Steve Sweeney (D-3).

Quote of the Day

quote of the day

"Christie’s method for coping with scandal has been more complicated. In January, the seemingly-local issue of lane closings on the George Washington Bridge, which created a massive traffic jam in the Hudson River town of Fort Lee, became one of national interest when it was revealed that one of Christie’s closest staffers had ordered them—for what looked like political retribution against a Democratic mayor. The scandal was quickly dubbed 'Bridgegate,' and unfortunately for Christie, it played into his reputation as a bully. Christie's response was to act unlike himself: humble." - Olivia Nuzzi
