Codey Looking To Deal With GOP Senators
Save Jersey is reporting that Senate President and sometimes Governor Dick Codey is seeking to make a deal with the GOP Senate caucus to retain the Senate Presidency. Codey reportedly is offering half the committee chairmanships in exchange for the 17 GOP votes. South Jersey Senator Steve Sweeney, who is challenging Codey for the senate presidency, announced yesterday that he has secured 14 of the 23 Democratic votes, which would give him the prize, barring a cross party deal.
Tom Kean, JR's caucus should take the deal, but only if Mary Jo Codey does a mammogram ad for Chris Christie.
