Who would want to be in Jersey in this mess? Not the Governor or his lieutenant. Democrat Stephen Sweeney, president of New Jersey’s state Senate, is coordinating the state’s blizzard aftermath while the state’s two top executives, both Republicans, are out of town on vacation. Gov. Chris Christie is with his family at Walt Disney World, while Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno—whose position, created this year, is meant to cover the governor's absences—is in Mexico with her family. Both left town Sunday. Acting Governor Sweeney has promised not to abuse his temporary power. Christie “was elected to govern the state, and I would never disrespect his office by playing games while he was away,” Sweeney said.
