The Week Steve Fulop showed why he’ll never be U.S. Secretary of State

Winner Losers
RAYMOND LESNIAK STEVE FULOP
The former state senator, who retired in January after 40 years in the Legislature, was the earliest and fiercest proponent of legalized sports betting — soon to be a reality courtesy of the U.S. Supreme Court. Ex-Gov. Christie gets plaudits for this too. The mayor of Jersey City looks like the Charlie Brown of New Jersey after her announces an agreement with the Polish government to move the Katyn monument, only to have the president of Poland say “never mind.”
MICHAEL MELHAM PAUL MIRABELLI
The mayor-elect of Belleville gets race reviews for developing his own vote-by-mail software that helped him oust a three-term incumbent. The mayor of Mountainside is now knee-deep in the Dildogate scandal and looks like a thug to New Jereyans who 24 hours ago had no clue who he was.
REED GUSCIORA  HIRSH SINGH
The longtime assemblyman picks up key support in his runoff bid to become mayor of Trenton, winning the endorsement of Mercer County Executive Brian Hughes. The congressional candidate who bragged about his personal wealth now looks ridiculous when his financial disclosure shows he’s worth practically nothing.
PHIL MURPHY RICHARD LEONARD
The governor of New Jersey has good poll numbers after his first four months in office: a 46%-29% approval rating. The Roseland councilman, in office for most of the last 40 years, now faces criminal charges after suggesting that his vote on a local issue was contingent on his vig.
FLAVIO RIVERA JOE FIORDALISO
The Paterson school board member secures a seat on the city council after the final count gives him enough votes to avoid a June 12 runoff. The apparent pick for deputy executive director of the Port Authority — Gov. Phil Murphy’s fourth or fifth choice, depending on whose version it is — may not get the job at all now that the governor of New York is blocking him — ironic since Fiordaliso lives in New York City.
