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.

quote of the day
