  • VIDEO: New TV Spot Touts Lance as “Principled Conservative”

  • What is Newt’s Endorsement Worth Now?

    What is Newt’s Endorsement Worth Now?

    Not much, Save Jerseyans. Everyone is talking about Newt Gingrich’s decision to (finally) suspend his campaign for the GOP nomination, effective May 1st. Which is weird enough, by the way.

  • Why Should Newt Drop Out? Part 2

    Santorum supporters are piling on poor old Newt and demanding that he drop out of the GOP primary race. Some are even accusing the former speaker of playing a “spoiler” role.

  • Newt’s Plan for $2.50 Gas

    I love when Newt sticks to hawking big conservative ideas, Save Jerseyans. Community immigration panels? Eh, not so much. Opening domestic (and extraterrestrial) energy resources to the private sector? Bravo! Encore! What follows is a 30-minute web advertisement, titled “$2.50 Per Gallon Gasoline, Energy Independence and Jobs — An Address by Newt Gingrich,” which the former speaker’s campaign […]
