BREAKING: Jersey City Mayor Steve Fulop announces intention to run for re-election and endorses Phil Murphy for NJ Governor

In a blockbuster announcement across the way from the Mile Square City, Jersey City Mayor reversed all conventional wisdom on his political future in one fell swoop.

First, with former US Ambassador to Germany and declared candidate for NJ Governor Phil Murphy standing several feet away, Mayor Fulop announced his intention to run for re-election. He quickly followed with a  shocking endorsement of Phil Murphy for NJ Governor.
