Codey heads for Senate Democrats’ caucus chamber

TRENTON – The door to Senate President Richard Codey's (D-Roseland) chamber opened and Gov.-elect Chris Christie emerged with Codey.

Christie went downstairs.

The sitting Senate President headed in the other direction around the backs of the chairs in the gallery on his way to the Democratic caucus room and a party vote on his leadership.

"We talked about growing up in Essex County," Codey said with a grin as he passed, referring to the closed meeting with Christie.
