Sen. Sweeney gets praise from GOP
First, Senate President Stephen Sweeney felt the wrath of fellow Democrats for partnering with Republican Gov. Chris Christie on a landmark employee benefits overhaul. Now he's being thanked for his efforts by the GOP.
The Republican State Committee sponsored robo-calls Tuesday, urging voters to thank Sweeney for cooperating with Christie.
The two supported legislation to make public workers pay more for pension and health benefits.
The calls come nearly a week after Sweeney publicly criticized the changes Gov. Christie made to the budget before signing into law.
