Well, he's concerned enough to have done some checking into him.
Over the weekend a political activist told me that the congressman was amused by Hogan's characterization of Pallone as "a millionaire." Pallone reportedly said he wouldn't be in congress if he was a millionaire. This would explain why Pallone has repeatedly declined to risk his "safe" seat for a shot at the U.S. Senate. He needs the job.
Pallone as a file of "dirt" to use against Hogan, should he win the nomination, according to the source.
