Peace in Hudson

Tonight’s fundraiser for State Sen. Sandra Cunningham represents a burying of the hatchet between two Hudson County power brokers.

Among the headliners of the event, scheduled to start at 6 p.m. aboard the Yacht Valiant out of Liberty State Park, is U.S. Sen. Bob Menendez.

Menendez and Cunningham have been embroiled in a now famous feud that carried over from an earlier battle between Menendez and Cunningham’s late husband Glenn, then a state senator and the mayor of Jersey City.

The two men had battled for years for control of the Hudson County Democratic Organization before Cunningham’s death in 2004. 

But all of that will be buried tonight when the Valiant sets sail with both aboard.
