  • POLL: Which 2017 Democrat gubernatorial hopeful would suck the least?

    By The Staff | The Save Jersey Blog The Democrat race to succeed Chris Christie isn’t much less intense than national party’s presidential primary right now, Save Jerseyans. Just in the last week, Steve Sweeney earned a “that-a-boy” for his pension prattle from the NJEA, newcomer Phil Murphy launched a Super PAC and Steven Fulop scrapped […]


  • Christie dumps on Trump during diner stop interview

    By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog I’m not sure that the no nonsense-looking waitress watching his conversation with John Harwood agreed, Save Jerseyans, but Chris Christie‘s message from New Hampshire was loud and clear this morning: Donald Trump wouldn’t make a good nominee… or president. In his opinion. “The math doesn’t support Donald’s position,” […]


  • 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 […]



  • 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 […]


  • 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 […]


  • NJGOP taps Sheridan, Davis for new roles

    By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog The NJGOP/Christie for President political establishment is shifting personnel at the end of July, Save Jerseyans, another sign that the Governor’s inner circle led by Bill Palatucci remains fully in control of the state party apparatus. On Monday, it was confirmed that State Committee Deputy Executive Director Pete […]


  • Once prosecuted by Christie, Passaic GOP power broker poised for comeback

    By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog Former Passaic GOP chairman Peter Murphy of Totowa ultimately plead guilty to mail fraud back in 2003 after a lengthy prosecution and conviction (the original result of which the 3rd Circuit set aside and remanded for a new trial), Save Jerseyans, but if the Passaic County Regular Republican Organization’s executive board […]


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

    By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog The Hogan endorsement first reported here at Save Jersey ended up being true, folks. Don’t act so surprised. 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 […]



  • 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 […]
