Heard on the Hill: New Jersey Welcomes You

Welcome to New Jersey, Ambassador.

Just after former China Ambassador Jon Huntsman announced he would run for president, Sen. Bob Menendez (D-N.J.) said he was happy Huntsman announced his candidacy in New Jersey.

Wait, what? New Jersey?! Huntsman may have been a bit surprised reading Menendezs open letter because he most likely thought he was in New York. CNN reported that media badges for new candidates announcement tour were printed: New York, New Hampshire, South Carolina, Florida, Utah, Nevada. Sorry, N.J., youre not included.

But then maybe thats normal. The New Jersey Senator spills a lot of ink talking about the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island, so maybe hes confused, too?

We kid, we kid. Menendez can totally see New York from his backyard and he doesnt want Huntsman to forget it.
