  • Christie signs fast-tracked EMS bill

    By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog Trenton is, without question, one of the most dysfunctional places on earth. Few folks on either side of the aisle would disagree with me, Save Jerseyans. It’s not just a matter of agreeing (or disagreeing) on spending priorities. We can’t even agree WHETHER to pay our pre-existing bills, […]


  • OPINION: $50 Million for Camden High is Money Down the Toilet

    By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog I can point to many wasteful education expenditures in this state that Governor Chris Christie can’t circumvent thanks to a Democratic Senate-guaranteed liberal bent of New Jersey Supreme Court; they stubbornly continue to legislate education funding policy from the bench. Only a GOP-controlled State Senate is going to […]


  • New Jersey’s Frosh House Members Head to Orientation

    By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog None of New Jersey’s twelve House seats changed hands between the parties last week, Save Jerseyans, but three members of the delegation are filling open or vacated seats (Norcross in NJ-01, MacArthur in NJ-03, and Bonnie Watson-Coleman in NJ-12). Now the work begins. On Wednesday, T-Mac tweeted […]


  • N.J. House and Senate Results

    By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog No surprises last night in Garden State at the federal level, Save Jerseyans, at least in terms of who won. Some of the GOP margins were impressive consistent with the Republican “wave” that did, in fact, ultimately materialize… Here are the unofficial totals for all N.J. 2014 […]


  • NJEA goes to bat for rich, safe Dems

    By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog The New Jersey (Mis)Education Association (NJEA) claims to represent teachers, Save Jerseyans, but you and I know it’s really a glorified, giant liberal Democrat PAC. And by giant, I mean HUGE in terms of raw dollars spent. They collect well over $130 million annually in union dues […]


  • Courier Post Backs MacArthur (and Savages Belgard)

    By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog Today’s NJ-03 endorsement from Southwest Jersey’s largest in-state daily newspaper was nothing short of EMBARRASSING for Aimee Belgard, Save Jerseyans. I’m not exaggerating for Tom’s sake. He doesn’t need my help if you believe the latest polling news. In endorsing Republican Tom MacArthur to succeed the retiring Jon Runyan, […]


  • Nancy Pelosi Fundraiser at Tavistock Met with Protest

    By Alyssa Lafage | The Save Jersey Blog It was a dreary, rainy day in South Jersey but despite the bad weather, Save Jerseyans, a couple dozen protesters showed up with signs and umbrellas in hand outside of the Tavistock Country Club where House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi headlined a $1,000 per plate luncheon fundraiser for fellow Democrat Donald Norcross. The protesters […]


  • NJEA Endorses 9 Dems, 1 GOP’er

    By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog If this doesn’t tell you everything that you need to know, Save Jerseyans, than I’m not sure what will… U.S. Senate: Cory Booker (D) CD-1: Donald Norcross (D) CD-2: Rep. Frank A. LoBiondo (R) CD-3: Aimee Belgard (D) CD-4: No endorsement CD-5: Roy Cho (D) CD-6: Rep. […]


  • ‘Open Space’ Travesty Says It All

    By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog Everything that drives me crazy about Trenton played out in last week’s passage of a new “Open Space” measure, Save Jerseyans, setting up a ballot question for the November election and another expenditure which we can ill-afford. Bad logic. Reckless spending. And a little good old fashioned […]


  • 200+ Protest Harry Reid’s South Jersey Visit

    By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog It was a coalition of the willing, Save Jerseyans, over 200 strong as they casually filtered in and out of the abandoned parking lot adjoining upscale Caffe Aldo Lamberti where Harry Reid and top New Jersey Democrat donors – led by George Norcross III – gathered to raise money […]


  • Reid Coming to South Jersey for Whom?

    By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog You’d think the Senate Majority Leader would focus exclusively on Senate races, particularly in a cycle when his party is widely believed to be in serious danger of losing the upper chamber. Caveat to this understandable presumption: George Norcross III “invites” you to help his brother. Then all bets are […]


  • Christie to Hold Court in Camden County

    By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog Most of Governor Chris Christie’s post-2012 town halls have taken place in Sandy-affected regions of Central Jersey and the Shore points, Save Jerseyans, and it’s not hard to see why, but for one day at least, he’s breaking out of that recovery-centric pattern on Wednesday as he heads to the suburban […]


  • The Second Yalta Conference

    By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog It’s New Jersey politics crica 2014 in a nutshell, Save Jerseyans. In honor of the Governor and the Senate President gathering for yet another higher education “stimulus” groundbreaking on Wednesday….
