  • Some (Political) Animals Are More Equal Than Others (in New Jersey)

    The Philadephia Inquirer ran an editorial last week arguing FOR Gabriela Mosquera’s admission to the New Jersey State Assembly. We’re still waiting for the NJ Supreme Court’s final word on the matter. The Inquirer’s argument? Who cares if her candidacy violated applicable state residency laws!? Everyone’s doing it… Although Mosquera, born in Ecuador, has lived […]

  • And the Winner is…. Alan Rosenthal?

    There’s going to be plenty of recriminations on the GOP side of the aisle today, Save Jerseyans. In truth, there were plenty of factors at play yesterday that resulted in a net zero gain at the legislative level. Here’s a big one. You’ll remember that Rosenthal, a professor at Rutgers, was the tiebreaker appointed to adjudicate […]

  • *** OPEN THREAD: New Jersey Election 2011 Results ***

    ELECTION NIGHT RESULTS THREAD: Polls are closed! Results will begin to trickle in now. Politicker has a good list of links to the county clerk websites where you can find rolling vote tallies… will be a little slower but they’ve gone through the trouble to break it down by district for those of you […]

  • Save Jersey Was Everywhere During Election 2011

    Did you vote Republican yet today? If not, then shut you laptop, put down your coffee, and head out to your polling place right now! However, if you haven’t totally made up your mind yet (which I find hard to believe at this point) you should take some time to watch all of our Election […]

  • It’s Election Day, Do You Know Where Your Polling Place Is?

    It is finally upon us Save Jerseyans. Election 2011. For months it appeared as though this day would never come, and it is finally here. You’ve seen all the stories, you’ve watched all of Save Jersey’s Operation Save the State House video interviews a million times over, and now you’re ready. Ready to go vote and […]

  • Vandals Attack a Middlesex County GOP Headquarters

    Every campaign cycle sees its fair share of vandalism, Save Jerseyans. Last year, our very Brian McGovern saw his car egged and his tires slashed in the final hours of a hyper-competitive local race down here in machine-controlled Camden County (Brian’s candidate ultimately won, btw, but Brian’s paint job not). Vandalism sucks, and it’s wrong, but it happens. Comes with the […]

  • Christie Family Goes ‘All In’ for LD38 Victory

    Pundits on both sides of the aisle are trying to gauge Governor Christie’s “seriousness” as his party battles for legislative gains in super-close LD2 and LD38. One powerful indication? If there’s one thing the man is serious about in this word it’s his lovely wife, Save Jerseyans, and she’s personally headed to LD38 this week […]

  • “We’re Not Done Yet…”

    Here’s Governor Christie’s LD38 TV ad in support of John Driscoll, one of four running as part of a large $500,000 buy spread over two media markets. Watch, and then comment below:

  • Flashback: For New Jersey’s Unions, It’s a Scalp or Irrelevance on November 8th

    Historically low voter turnout on November 8th means virtually anything is possible, Save Jerseyans. A well-organized “off-year” campaign can be expected, within reason, to overcome significant voter registration and campaign finance disadvantages by mobilizing and turning out their superiorly-enthusiastic base on Election Day. The folks who only vote in presidential years are sitting this one […]

  • Christie Stumps in Mississippi For Bryant this Week

    Even though he is not running for President, our Governor still has some traveling to do. This Thursday Governor Christie will be leaving the the early-wintered New Jersey for Mississippi. Once there he will be stumping for Phil Bryant. Bryant is the Republican Gubernatorial candidate who will be replacing Haley Barbour in the Governor’s Mansion. […]

  • A Solyndra Ethics Problem for Bob Gordon (D-38)?

    Here is yet ANOTHER potentially huge Democrat ethics scandal that the media isn’t discussing, Save Jerseyans. The Obama Administration’s ongoing entanglement with the solar scam artists at Solyndra is an excellent example of the corruption that inevitably arises from (1) big government’s collaboration with (2) far-left environmental ideologues. Now we may have an example even closer […]

  • The Race for Good Government in Gloucester County

    Finally, we have the Glouester County Republican candidates’ first commerical (in years, I think) running in our county. For those in the dark: this year, for the first time in almost two decades, Republicans have a great opportunity to win control of Gloucester County government. Vince Nestore and I were elected with the help of […]
