The powerful State Senator is under fire for the role of his law partner in a scheme with a reputed mob figure that would bring New York trash into New Jersey.

PAUL D’AMATO

 

JIM SHEEHAN

The Linwood Mayor seems poised to win the GOP Assembly nomination in the 2nd district, leveraging his friendship with Sen. Bill Gormley to leap frog over other Republican contenders for the seat of Assemblyman Ken LeFevre.

 

The Bergen County Freeholder is forced to drop his campaign for GOP County Chairman after incumbent Henk Shotmeyer rescinded his resignation; Sheehan had emerged as the favorite for the post.

JON CORZINE

 

BOB JANISZEWSKI

The freshman U.S. Senator won praise from Democrats as the only Senator to bring up racial profiling during Christie Whitman’s confirmation hearing..

KEN LOZIER

 

POLITICSNJ

The attorney and former policeman was appointed to fill a vacancy as a Hamilton Township Councilman and will head the GOP ticket in the local fall election.   This website inaccurately reported the date of Whitman’s Senate confirmation and the sale of property owned by Assemblyman Joe Azzolina’s, for which we apologize.
