The NJ Senate GOP unanimously voted to support Tom Kean,Jr as Senate President next year, effectively ending Dick Codey's long tenure as Senate President.
With 17 of 40 Senate seats, the minority GOP had reportedly been courted by Codey who has lost a majority of the Democratic votes to South Jersey Senator Steve Sweeney.
Sweeney is said to have 14 Democratic votes to Codey's 13. If Codey and his supporters vote for Kean, Junior would follow in his father's footsteps by leading a legislative chamber as a minority member. Tom Kean, Sr was elected Assembly Speaker in 1972 with the support of four Democrats.
Don't bet on that happening.
