Ask the Governor Program from 5/30/12

It was a shortened week from the newsroom with the holiday on Monday.  We recap everything from another frenzied week in Trenton politics to a dead bear found on the side of Rt. 95 to an historic day in Mets history.

Meanwhile, Governor Christie drew battle lines after his second supreme court nominee was denied.  Kevin McArdle wondered what this means for bi-partisanship in NJ.  David Matthau recaps the Governor’s East Brunswick Town Hall.

For the second straight Friday night, a major sports story happened in the area.  Johan Santana threw the first no-hitter in the history of the Mets franchise at Citi Field against the St. Louis Cardinals.

That’s another week in the books for New Jersey.  One note:  I will be on vacation through June 12th.  Annette Petriccione will be writing the daily “From The Newsroom” blog. I will still write week in review for next Saturday.

Have a wonderful weekend and I will be back with you all very soon.  We close with the video of the week below, which is a video replay of this week’s “Ask The Governor’ program.
