New Jersey Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno denied allegations that she made supporting a redevelopment project championed by Gov. Chris Christie a condition to receive federal relief funds to rebuild Hoboken after Hurricane Sandy.
The winning bidder for New Jersey's Superstorm Sandy marketing contract now causing political grief for Gov. Chris Christie added jobs in its proposal that didn't appear on the company's government price list — a move that could have hindered officials trying to evaluate whether the bid was the best deal for taxpayers.
Chris Christie owes a lot to the Fort Lee traffic jam. He's getting a lot of street cred with the conservatives who only yesterday were skeptical of the governor, remembering his wet-kiss romance with Barack Obama in the wake of Hurricane Sandy.
Already reeling from the "Bridgegate" scandal, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie faced new political trouble Monday as federal investigators questioned whether he violated the law by spending $25 million in Hurricane Sandy emergency money on tourism ads featuring his family.

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie on Thursday tapped Jeffrey S. Chiesa, the state's Republican attorney general and a longtime adviser, to the Senate seat left open by the passing earlier this week of Democratic Sen. Frank R. Lautenberg, sending Mr. Chiesa to Washington just in time for high-profile legislative scraps over immigration and taxpayer-funded farm subsidies.
When New Jersey Sen. Frank R. Lautenberg announced in February he wasn't running for re-election next year, the path seemed cleared for Newark Mayor Cory Booker to waltz into the seat. The energetic and telegenic Democrat has strong ties with his party's leadership, and his populist governing style made him one of the most popular politicians in the Democratic-leaning Garden State.
Under intense pressure from angry Republicans, House Speaker John Boehner agreed Wednesday to a vote this week on aid for Superstorm Sandy recovery.

Newark Mayor Cory Booker, perhaps New Jersey's highest-profile Democrat, has ruled out a bid for governor next year and is eyeing a run for U.S. Senate in 2014 instead.
The Republican-controlled House voted Thursday to repeal a Medicare cost-cutting panel that was part of President Obama's health care overhaul, delivering a carefully-timed blow to his signature accomplishment one day before the two-year anniversary of his signing it into law.
After voting last fall to scrap a long-term care program in President Obama's health care law, House Republicans homed in Wednesday on their next major target in the law by advancing legislation that would repeal a Medicare cost-cutting panel and winning support for the move from a leading Democrat.
Democrats are digging in their heels over a recently suspended part of President Obama's health care law, saying they want to fix the flailing long-term care program instead of repealing it, as Republicans have proposed.
The reading of the Constitution in the U.S. House of Representatives was interrupted Thursday by a woman who shouted, "Except Obama, except Obama," to the venerable document's words on a U.S. citizen's eligibility to be president.
"I wasn't party to the conversations, but I do think the allegations of the mayor of Hoboken are very serious," he said. "This whole idea of abuse of power has to be looked into."
Rep. Frank Pallone Jr., New Jersey Democrat, said some Jersey Shore residents still haven't received checks to rebuild their homes, even suggesting that this money was tied to political gain is wrong.
