    Democratic power broker George Norcross made headlines last week when he used a Politicker NJ interview to urge his party to unite around the “high quality” candidacy of Sen. Barbara Buono (D-Edison) in this fall's gubernatorial race.


    Democratic power broker George Norcross made headlines last week when he used a Politicker NJ interview to urge his party to unite around the "high quality" candidacy of Sen. Barbara Buono (D-Edison) in this fall's gubernatorial race.

    Norcross then proceeded to take a few shots at state Sen. Dick Codey (D-Livingston), who's been very publicly weighing a gubernatorial run of his own. Norcross dismisses the idea of a Codey run, but in this week's Grapevine, our sources suggest there might be more to the story. Maybe Norcross wants Codey to run, the source suggests. Run, and fail, that is.

    For old time's sake, check out the YouTube video Codey released last month poking fun at his gubernatorial deliberations. Note: The video was made before Newark Mayor Cory Booker decided not to for governor.

    In this week's State Street column, a preview of a couple key February issues: Sen. Ray Lesniak (D-Union) says look for some serious utilities legislation to come out of committee next month. Meanwhile, Sen. Bob Smith (D-Piscataway) says he'll come to the rescue of the state's Open Space fund in February, putting forth a trio of funding proposals in hopes one of the three will end up on November's ballot.

    Also, Princeton Public Affairs Group's Dale Florio says don't count out the state' Internet gaming bill just yet. Though Gov. Chris Christie previously vetoed an i-gaming bill, Florio says any hurdles to Christie's signature this time around can be overcome.
