Twittering Pallone Takes Shot At Christie

Congressman Frank Pallone, who has been extremely critical of Republican gubernatorial candidate Chris Christie in the past, has fired what may be the first shot at Chris Christie by a Democratic official, since being the official Republican candidate for Govenor. 
Pallone left the following message on his Twitter page a short time ago. 

“GOP primary revealed Chris Christie’s true right-wing colors. Anti-choice, tax breaks for the super-wealthy & opposes new gun safety laws.”

Video: Jon Corzine Biography

Now that the primary is over Gov. Jon Corzine has officially kicked off his re-election bid. If you think you know Gov. Corzine just by the fact that he has been governor for 3 1/2 years you may be mistaken. The following biographical video was released by his campaign a few hours ago. It’s a very positive and uplifting portrayal of the Governor that few have known before.
