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.
Following the speeches from elected officials, the crowd stands at long tables as they dig into BBQ, brunswick stew, cadillac rice at the Law Enforcement Cookout at Wayne Dasher's pond house in Glennville, Ga., on Thursday, April 17, 2014.
