  • Bonnie strikes again, this time in wake of Trenton shooting

    By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog The most irresponsible member of New Jersey’s congressional delegation? Maybe. And that’s really saying something in a group that includes Bob Menendez (D-Dominican Repulic, Ecuador). Bonnie Watson Coleman lies, which is nothing novel for politicians, but she’s also reckless. Remember when she had to resign from the Bridgegate […]


  • Norcross announces opposition to Iran Deal

    By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog Another New Jersey Democrat is coming out against President Obama’s Iran Deal: Donald Norcross. He shared his rationale on Tuesday evening with the Congregation Sons of Israel in Cherry Hill: “The Iranian regime is a known sponsor of terrorism that has made no secret of its hatred for […]



  • MacArthur travels to Israel as Iran Deal-related tensions mount

    By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog House Freshman always avail themselves of an August-recess trip to Israel, Save Jerseyans, but with a vote on the Iran nuclear “deal” scheduled for September, this cycle’s adventure has taken on an entirely new air of seriousness for attendees including New Jersey’s Tom MacArthur (R, NJ-03).

    By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog We don’t interview a ton of Democrats around here, Save Jerseyans, but when I found out that one is challenging Rep. Donald Norcross (D, NJ-01) and his family political organization this cycle – right in your Blogger-in-Chief’s backyard – I was intrigued to say the least. Alex Law […]



  • 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 […]


  • OPINION: Tom Moran’s Garrett commentary crossed a line

    By Scott St. Clair | The Save Jersey Blog I thought The Star-Ledger didn’t print ad hominem personal attacks, yet Sunday’s nasty hit piece against Rep. Scott Garrett, R-NJ, by Tom Moran certainly qualifies. Disagree with him on policy – fine. But wishing violence upon him as he did in his John Wayne dream paragraph – […]



  • Schepisi takes to Facebook for contrast with Garrett

    By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog It could be nothing, Save Jerseyans, but when Assemblywoman Holly Schepisi took to Facebook in the hours after Rep. Scott Garrett came under fire for alleged derogatory comments about gay Republican candidates, one couldn’t help but take note of the timing. “As a Republican assemblywoman representing a fiscally […]
