  • The Under-Discussed Democrat Empty Bench Crisis

    By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog At least until the email fiasco, Save Jerseyans, almost everyone talked about Hillary Clinton as inevitable in 2016.

    By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog The FCC’s 400-page Net Neutrality monstrosity dropped on Thursday, Save Jerseyans, and Rep. Leonard Lance (NJ-07), New Jersey’s sole member of the House Energy and Commerce Communications and Technology Subcommittee, seized the opportunity to condemn what he views as “Depression-era” rules. “The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has finally […]


  • Garrett stands alone after “clean” DHS bill vote

    By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog What do most House Republicans agree on today, Save Jerseyans?
