No one is going to question the testicular fortitude of Michael Drewniak, the spokesman for the U.S. Attorney’s office and a registered Democrat. He took a short leave from his job with the Justice Department today to attend, on his own time, the campaign kickoff of his former boss, Christopher Christie, for the Republican nomination for Governor.

"Assembly Speaker Vincent Prieto, a Hudson County Democrat, is balking. He claimed Tuesday that members of his caucus are divided over the measure and that his house is in no real rush – besides, even if enacted this year, the reforms would not take effect until 2017, he said. And with the growing belief that Christie could skip town to run for president, some Democrats are not eager to give him another talking point for his résumé. Christie’s plans to stump for Republican candidates in New Hampshire later Thursday only fuel that suspicion." - columnist Charles Stile- The Bergen Record
