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 Menendezís open letter because he most likely thought he was in New York. CNN reported that media badges for new candidateís announcement tour were printed: ďNew York, New Hampshire, South Carolina, Florida, Utah, Nevada.Ē Sorry, N.J., youíre not included.

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

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