Murphy told the Long Branch audience how happy he was to be there, which he was able to do because the budget was passed, and how happy he is that the budget helps the middle class, according to our well rested source in the room.

    Prediction: some point soon, Frank will announce next year’s election will be his last and his brother will succeed him. Bet on it
