Love them, hate them, but you can’t deny that they’re the two greatest communicators of the past 20 years in American politics.

“While her name recognition has climbed to 46 percent of voters from only 30 percent in April, nearly all of that increase has come from voters who now have an unfavorable impression of her,” Rutgers-Eagleton Poll Director David Redlawsk. “The onslaught of attack ads by Gov.

S-1904/A3131 (Sarlo/Prieto, Wagner) – Allows for the issuance of special licenses to sell alcoholic beverages in qualifying development projects
