    By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog The ink on his indictment is barely dry, Save Jerseyans, but the court battle over Bob Menendez‘s future is already producing fireworks. There’s a report about it today from The Associated Press that’s worth reading. It’s going to be down and dirty. It’ll be bare knuckles, I’m sure,” […]



  • MacArthur visits Fox News to argue for American-made seals

    By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog It’s a symbolic gesture, Save Jerseyans, and Rep. Tom MacArthur (R, NJ-03) readily admits that, but it’s one which he thinks is important enough to make this term as Chinese cyber-attacks reach a new level of damaging seriousness. Fox News talked to him about it over the […]


  • See, I told you so: Poll leader Trump channels Christie, eats reporter

    By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog I don’t enjoy being right about this stuff as much as my detractors might lead you to believe, Save Jerseyans. It’s usually regarding something that’s less-than-good news for the good guys. For starters, there’s the extent to which the GOP’s current and former 2016 pack leaders are letting […]


  • Fact Check: Christie’s gun rights record

    By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog Is any press good press in a presidential primary slug fest, Save Jerseyans?

  • Carolina (manners) in my Jersey Boy mind

    By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog A few of you know that I’ve been vacationing in the Outer Banks this week, Save Jerseyans. It’s an annual tradition for me. I love North Carolina, its people and their barbecue. The views and seafood ain’t too bad either. Thus far, Dare County and its neighbors have avoided […]


  • Burlco welcomes home heroine Carli Lloyd

    By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog Here’s finally something a little less depressing for consumers of Jersey news: the Delran native and former Medford Striker was back in Burlington County on Wednesday, Save Jerseyans, where Carli Lloyd earned a hero’s welcome as she continues a national victory lap after carrying the U.S. women’s team […]


  • Breaking Booker’s nakedly revisionist immigration history

    By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog Cory Booker (D-Twitter) is taking a break from legislative love and governing-by-rainbow today to do what his party does best, Save Jerseyans: make shit up for self-serving reasons. Distorting history in this case: Know your facts – it was George Bush who instituted the asylum rules for […]


  • Christie rolls out National Finance Team

    By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog Washburne has been on the team since at least January; he’s part of the reason Governor Christie spent so much time in the Cowboys owner’s box, Save Jerseyans. The rest of the names reflect an obvious RGA-theme (e.g. Whitman in Cali and Foley in CT were both Christie-backed […]


  • Passaic GOP executive committee backs Murphy with 16-4 vote

    By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog UPDATE: A vote of the full committee is still required, Save Jerseyans, but Tuesday evening’s resounding 16-4 vote to remove any technical barrier to former Passaic GOP Chairman Peter Murphy of Totowa rejoining the county committee makes it clear enough who’s in charge of the party in this North Jersey […]
