One story is absorbing most of the oxygen in the New Jersey news room this weekend through tomorrowand that’s the one-year anniversary of Superstorm Sandy. (See many links below.)
But there are a few more stories out there: Cory Booker will be relieved to read The Record’s storyexplaining why his relatively “close” 11-point win over Steve Lonegan was an anomaly.
By the way it was a big weekend at The Record — with the paper getting shout-outs from WNYC (forJohn Brennan’s Xanadu coverage) and from MSNBC (for its interview with Chris Christie detailing his relationship with President Obama).
Finally back to Sandy: S.P. Sullivan has a new story angle on the Superstorm, writing on NJ.com of how Sandy may have had a beneficial effect on the Meadowlands.
