Elliot Spitzer makes a New Jersey appearance

Former New York Gov. Elliot Spitzer made what might be his first expedition into New Jersey politics on Monday when he joined Jersey City Mayor Steve Fulop for a groundbreaking of a new residential apartment development.

Spitzer’s company, Spitzer Enterprises, is the developer of a 600-unit project in Journal Square, across from what will be the Pompidou Centre Jersey City and Loews Theater.

The Pompidou Center, a Paris-based art museum and cultural center, announced in June that they would expand to Jersey City.  Plans include turning a century-old building at 25 Journal Square into a cultural attraction for the city.

Fulop, recently re-elected to a third term as mayor by a near 2-1 margin, is considered a potential candidate for the Democratic nomination for governor of New Jersey in 2025.

The 62-year-old Spitzer served as New York’s governor from 2007 to 2008, when a scandal necessitated his resignation.    He previously served two terms as the attorney general of New York.
