  • Five Good Things About The Trump Boomlet

    By Dan Cirucci | Dan Cirucci’s Blogspot Nothing seems to be able to stop Donald Trump’s fledgling presidential campaign this summer. Nothing! And, we’ve got to admit — it’s sort of fun to watch. Here are five good things about the sudden Trump surge: 1) Trump is raising important issues that candidates in both parties have not […]


  • 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 […]




  • 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 […]


  • 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 […]


  • Hogan: I wouldn’t be here “were not for this guy right here”

Here’s some video: GOVERNOR HOGAN: Thank you very much for coming. It’s really my pleasure to welcome Governor Chris Christie back to Maryland for, I think, the seventh time in […]


  • Rooney’s 2016 Race Rankings – 7/15/15

    By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog For most of Republican history, Save Jerseyans, we picked our candidates in smokey back rooms. That system had its merits. Then we moved away from the convention system towards the “primary” system in the latter part of the 20th century. Still, what you ended up having was an […]


  • Wednesday: Hogan to endorse Christie?

    By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog Governor Chris Christie‘s campaign is talking up a “Special Announcement Event” at Annapolis’s Double T Diner in Maryland on Wednesday morning, Save Jerseyans. Since it’s not a battleground state in the primary (or the general), logic dictates that he may be heading to the state capital for something other than […]



  • Does Walker’s lack of a degree matter to you?

    By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog Take it from a guy with a law degree, Save Jerseyans: some of the dumbest people in my personal and professional universe also happen to have the most diplomas hanging on their office walls. Can I get an amen? That being said, the last U.S. president to […]


  • The Trump who stole Christie’s playbook

    By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog I am NOT, repeat not, endorsing Donald Trump in this post, Save Jerseyans. This is 2015; it’s okay to date someone without having any serious interest in marrying them. Opinions around here all over the place. Some Save Jersey contributors are impressed by the magnate’s entry into presidential […]
