Quote of the Week

From State Senate Candidate Steve Oroho at Thursday's 24th District Debate:
"You've heard some very clear differences between my opponent and myself. It doesn't mean Ed's a bad guy. It doesn't mean I'm a bad guy. It just means we're different," Oroho said. "We should all be happy we live in a country where it's OK to be different."
It's so unusual to hear something like this in these days of hyper-partisanship. It reflects the kind of dialogue that can happen when both sides are being honest about their stances. That's not to say there weren't barbs going both ways, but the coverage of the event from the New Jersey Herald made it seem like a constructive debate.

They also covered the Assembly debate here.
