Jon S. Corzine's U.S. Senate campaign received a boost yesterday when B. Thomas Byrne Jr., who had considered running for the Democratic nomination in New Jersey, said he would not be a candidate and threw his support to Corzine. The action by Byrne, a onetime state Democratic chairman and the son of former Gov. Brendan T. Byrne, enabled Corzine to consolidate his North Jersey base further for the 2000 primary battle against former Gov. Jim Florio. Although Byrne had attracted negligible support, the Corzine camp was concerned that his presence on the ballot could drain enough votes from Corzine in the northern part of the state to help Florio, whose strength is in the south.

Gov. Corzine did not violate his office's code of conduct when he lent a Trenton lobbyist $5,000 in bail money after she was arrested on charges she stalked state Democratic chairman Joseph Cryan, a special advisory board has ruled. In a Tuesday letter to Corzine chief counsel Stuart Rabner, the two-member governor's Advisory Ethics Panel did, however, suggest that Corzine steer clear of his former aide, Karen Golding, while her legal troubles are pending "in order to avoid even the appearance of impropriety.

New Jersey Sen. Jon S. Corzine is launching his campaign for governor this week, two months earlier than planned, in a bid to close the door on a potential challenge from fellow Democrat and acting Gov. Richard J. Codey. Corzine, whose record-setting campaign spending propelled him to the U.S. Senate in 2000, enters next year's race as the heavy favorite because of his personal fortune and polls that rank him the state's most popular political figure. Widely considered the Democratic heir apparent for governor since James E. McGreevey announced his resignation in August, Corzine had initially planned to declare his candidacy as late as March.

When Gov. Corzine delivered his budget address to the Legislature last month, he said a financial "day of reckoning" had arrived for a state that had lived too long beyond its means. "We can't keep spending more than we take in," he said in unveiling a budget full of tax increases and spending cuts. The proposed budget will be subject to legislative revamping in the months ahead. But for now, it holds center stage. What follows is an exploration of the questions and controversies - including Corzine's call for higher taxes - raised by that budget.

U.S. Sen. Jon Corzine (D., N.J.) acknowledged yesterday that he is part of an informal partnership with friend and developer Charles Kushner in preliminary talks to buy the New Jersey Nets. But Corzine said he would oppose any state subsidies toward the purchase or operation of the Nets or their co-tenants at the Continental Airlines Arena in East Rutherford, the New Jersey Devils. The partners' group requested $100 million in subsidies during a conference call Friday with officials from the New Jersey Sports and Exposition Authority, several newspapers reported Monday.

TRENTON - Gov. Corzine is back in the building. Or at least he was. Corzine yesterday returned to the Statehouse for the first time since a serious April 12 highway accident to talk with legislative leaders about the state budget. "It's good to be back to work," he told a throng of reporters waiting for him as he emerged, on forearm crutches, from the governor's office around midday. "It's good to be back here. " For nearly a month after the accident - which landed Corzine in intensive care and on a ventilator with a snapped left femur, 11 broken ribs, and a fractured breastbone and collarbone - Senate President Richard J. Codey (D., Essex)

Gov. Corzine's doctors yesterday said he was doing remarkably well given the extent of the injuries he suffered in a car wreck Thursday, but acknowledged he is "certainly not out of the woods yet. " Corzine remained on a ventilator in critical but stable condition at Cooper University Hospital in Camden following what medical staff there described as a routine - and successful - 40-minute procedure to clean dead tissue and debris from the wound...

The office of governor in New Jersey is supposedly the most powerful in the country. So far, you wouldn't know it by Gov. Corzine. Corzine's meekness was on full display in his mystifying vote of confidence for State Sen. Wayne Bryant (D., Camden). Bryant is reportedly under investigation by federal authorities for allegations concerning his former cushy, $38,200-a-year consulting job at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey. While on the payroll for doing goodness-only-knows at the school, Bryant also secured millions in state funds for UMDNJ.

Gov. Corzine apparently was not wearing a seat belt in a Thursday evening crash on the Garden State Parkway that left him in critical but stable condition this morning with a dozen fractured ribs and a broken leg, collarbone, breastbone and vertebra. Corzine remained heavily sedated on a ventilator in Cooper University Hospital's intensive care unit, and underwent surgery this morning to remove debris from his leg wound. His doctors have scheduled a noon briefing after the operation.

Now that Gov. Corzine has submitted his painfully disciplined state budget, the fiscally undisciplined Legislature should resist the temptation to do what it usually does - slough off restraint and spend at will. Corzine's tough-love budget is necessary and sound, even if his proposed budget solutions fall heavily on the middle class. His goals are to stop relying on irresponsible gimmicks, such as neglecting to fund the state's pension obligations, and to force Trenton to live within its means.

White-collar defense work is on the upswing for many Philadelphia-based law firms as the federal government continues the crackdown on corporate misconduct that began during the 2008 financial crisis. Once an afterthought for big corporate firms, white-collar defense is now playing a larger role in firms' business plans. Law firms are actively recruiting partners, marketing the service to existing clients and planning long-term expansions. One reason is an abundance of work as the result of government investigations and the expectation of clients that law firms have a robust practice to handle problems as they emerge.

Corzine, the former New Jersey governor and Goldman Sachs Group Inc. cochairman, probably will be sued by the Commodity Futures Trading Commission for his role in the collapse of MF Global Holdings Ltd., said a person with direct knowledge of the situation. The CFTC, the federal agency that regulated MF Global until the brokerage filed for bankruptcy in 2011, could sue Corzine as soon as this week, said the person, who asked for anonymity because the case is not yet public.

Federal regulators are preparing to sue former New Jersey Gov. Jon S. Corzine over the collapse of a brokerage firm he headed after leaving office and its misuse of customer funds, the New York Times reported Tuesday. The newspaper said the Commodity Futures Trading Commission is expected to approve the lawsuit this week. Corzine headed MF Global until its bankruptcy in 2011 following disclosures that $1 billion customers had entrusted to the brokerage had disappeared. The Times said the planned lawsuit marks a departure from the past in that the agency has informed Corzine's lawyers that it aims to file the civil case without offering him an opportunity to settle.

Lautenberg's family and colleagues recalled him Wednesday as a feisty and determined man whose life story shaped his work - and also described a personal side rarely seen in public.

Vice President Biden, former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, and New Jersey Sen. Robert Menendez delivered eulogies.

Net property taxes in New Jersey rose 22.4 percent in Gov. Christie's first three years in office, compared to 6 percent in Democratic Gov. Jon S. Corzine's last three years in office, a New Jersey Spotlight analysis shows. Christie has been touting his record of holding down overall property tax increases. But when his rebate reductions are factored in, his property tax record is not so clear-cut. While Corzine doubled average property tax rebates from 2006 to 2009 and provided rebates to families earning as much as $250,000, Christie sharply cut rebate payments and limited eligibility for non-seniors to those earning $75,000 or less.

The fight for the New Jersey governor's seat is to heat up on the airwaves Wednesday as Gov. Christie launches his first TV ad of the campaign - a $1.2 million, 60-second spot on jobs, education and taxes, with a hint of Sandy imagery. "Four years ago, New Jersey was broken: runaway spending, the nation's highest taxes, and unemployment on the rise," the narrator says. "Then we elected Chris Christie. He made the tough decisions to get New Jersey back on track. " The ad notably does not mention the name of the Republican governor's presumptive Democratic challenger, State Sen. Barbara Buono (D., Middlesex)

Stephen Sweeney may be the top elected Democrat in New Jersey, but that doesn't mean his reelection in November is a given, said Patrick Murray, political analyst at Monmouth University. Gov. Christie performed better than anticipated in Sweeney's Gloucester County in the 2009 race against former Gov. Jon S. Corzine, Murray said. "Republicans have made some gains in that county," Murray said. Sweeney, he said, "is more vulnerable than a lot of people would believe, considering he's the Senate president.
