Sweeney quietly building support to run for governor

Much of New Jersey’s political attention has been on Gov. Chris Christie’s potential presidential run, but Senate President Steve Sweeney is slowly gearing up for his own expected run for governor.

Sweeney continues to make more appearances outside of Gloucester County district, building name recognition and raising his profile as the Democrat to beat.

Neither Christie nor Sweeney have publicly announced their next intentions, but the political plays are closely related.

Just when Sweeney may run is very dependent on Christie’s presidential aspirations and when he would resign as governor of New Jersey.

For the time being, expect both to continue to act very much like candidates without officially declaring themselves as such.
