  • 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 […]

  • Fact Check: Christie’s gun rights record

    By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog Is any press good press in a presidential primary slug fest, Save Jerseyans? It’s debatable when your name recognition is already sky-high like Chris Christie‘s is, but with his Iowa numbers down around 1%, I guess it can’t hurt. On Saturday, it came in the form of […]

  • 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 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.

  • As the Confederate flag goes, so goes racist Democrat Woodrow Wilson

    By Scott St. Clair | The Save Jersey Blog Removing the Confederate battle flag from official state buildings, state flags and license plates after the Charleston massacre is appropriate, and I endorse the policy. But if the crusade against all things Confederate and its legacy, including demands by our Legislature “to omit any reference to […]

  • Two risky assumptions underpin the Christie 2016 primary plan

    By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog Governor Christie’s presidential campaign strategy boils down to two major assumptions: (1) Electoral Assumption: He can win a crowded New Hampshire – and make a Clinton ’92-style comeback – by living in New Hampshire for the next 7 months and scrapping together a plurality victory; and (2) Substantive Assumption: He can campaign/message on […]
