It’s a big “D”, but I had to search a number of sources to determine that!

IMO they don’t have to. In NJ, you’re a Democrat. Period, end of discussion;) Electing Chris Christie was EXTREMELY out of character....

It says “democrat” in plain sight. Paragraph 16.

It’s not like they buried in the LAST paragraph or anything.

Yep, seems like Christie rather beat up on old lady teachers rather than tackle the big boys.

That's not fair! The AP isn't hiding that the perp-mayor is a Democrat! They DO mention he's a Democrat.

Once. Midway through the 16th paragraph.

(Oh, wait...)
