Christie Rocks Pancake House for Hogan

By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog

Democrats are busy playing defense with two weeks left to go before America votes, Save Jerseyans, but Governor Chris Christie’s RGA tried to expand its target map on Tuesday by sending the chairman to a pancake house in deep blue Maryland  (he was in DC for a Chamber of Commerce keynote) to stump for gubernatorial candidate Larry Hogan, a Republican who appears to be closing the gap.

And no, before you ask, he never touched a pancake…

By Staff | The Save Jersey Blog

Republican candidate Tom MacArthur and Democrat Aimee Belgard, and Democratic-Republican Party of New Jersey candidate Fred Lavergne will face off in the next NJ-03 debate of 2014 tonight at Ocean County College in Toms River, Save Jerseyans.

Belgard badly needs a win after a rough 2nd debate and souring polls.

Christie’s Epic Public Union Smackdown

By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog

Regardless of how you feel about the hiring of Joey D’s kid, Save Jerseyans, you’ve gotta love last night’s Christie Christie radio smackdown of a troll public sector union caller who called to take on the Governor and walked away dragging his tail between his legs when Christie let loose an epic rant on the public pension/benefits system

We don’t get to see much of this guy anymore. I miss him:

Ask the Governor at 7PM

By Staff | The Save Jersey Blog

It’s time for yet another rousing edition of NJ 101.5‘s ‘Ask the Governor’ program, Save Jerseyans.

Watch a live stream right here beginning at 7:00 p.m.

Christie, Brownback Scream for Ice Cream (VIDEO)

By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog

The latest polling suggests that Gov. Sam Brownback (R-KS) may yet overcome a tough challenge from Democrat Paul Davis in the Sunflower State, Save Jerseyans, so Gov. Chris Christie dropped by on Monday to try and lend a hand… and eat some stuff that’s not on his diet at Freddy’s Frozen Custard in Wichita:

Christie to NAACP: “Sinners” in Both Parties

By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog

Governor Chris Christie’s Saturday NAACP talk hit on familiar themes, Save Jerseyans, ones which he’s expected to carry into his presidential campaign with the expectation of echoing (repeating might be too big of a climb) the electoral breadth of his 2013 Garden State victory. “I don’t think second chances are just the domain of Democrats or Republicans,” Christie told the membership luncheon attendees gathered at the Hilton Parsippany. “Because from my perspective, we have sinners and wrongdoers aplenty in both parties.”

Here’s the full speech (it runs a little over half an hour):

Christie Wades into Sayreville Hazing Debacle

The Governor also said he was “concerned” about the ongoing Ebola crisis amid concerns from legislators and experts during a press availability outside of the offices of the Dioceses of Trenton on Thursday afternoon:



More at Stake Beyond Donovan/Saudino Drama

By Matthew Gilson | The Save Jersey Blog

saudino donovan bergenNever wanting for a dull day in Bergen County, Save Jerseyans, video surfaced over the weekend featuring Republican Sheriff Mike Saudino appearing to endorse Democrat Jim Tedesco and his running mates in the upcoming election.  

Now the sheriff is backtracking claiming he has made no endorsement in the race. 

It’s no secret that Saudino and Donovan have had a rocky relationship (at best) for some time now; Saudino was particularly angry after Donovan refused to sign the contract negotiated with the sheriff’s officers.  However, Saudino has also repeatedly said at BCRO meetings that his differences with the county executive are a matter of policy, not personal, and that they are both working to help the citizens of Bergen County.

It’s critical that that work occur over the next four weeks.


Christie Phonebanking in Connecticut

By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog

The race in Connecticut is too close to call with four weeks left to go, Save Jerseyans, so Governor Chris Christie saddled up to a telephone station and participated in a Tom Foley phone bank on Monday (h/t; he’ll visit Florida on Wednesday for Rick Scott before traveling to Pennsylvania for a Thursday rally and then off to New England (RI & NH) on Friday:

Donovan Debates Tedesco in Teaneck (VIDEO)

By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog

Republican incumbent Kathleen Donovan and Democratic Freeholder Jim Tedesco faced off during a 90-minuted debate on Thursday night at the Teaneck Public Library, Save Jerseyans, and it was obvious to everyone present that both candidates have no love lost for the other. No surprises there…

Video, from start to finish:

“Those People Deserve to Have Their Heads Taken Off”

By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog

I was the first to discuss Team Christie’s bid to revive the GOP’s “compassionate conservatism” strategy since, as you well know, Save Jersey was tracking Chris Christie’s every move before it was cool. You’re welcome.

The mainstream types are starting to clue in. Wednesday’s “CBS This Morning” ran an interview featuring Gayle King interviewing Chris Christie; his Tuesday heroin event in Newark was the primary topic but his weight, 2016, President Obama’s handling of ISIS (hint: CJC isn’t impressedand the Guv’s attitude (or said another way, how he chooses when it’s appropriate to dole out Christie-style verbal wrath and retribution) inevitably entered into the discussion…

Christie, Kasich Rally in Ohio

By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog

In between stumping for Scott Walker on Monday and flying back home for a Newark drug addiction summit on Tuesday afternoon, Governor Chris Christie joined incumbent Gov. John Kasick (R-OH) and Rob Portman (R-OH) for a rally days before the key 2016 state will begin casting ballots in its 2014 gubernatorial et. al. election (he isn’t in any danger; the latest poll showed him leading the Democrat challenger by 30-points).

They’re RGA BFFs, so says Kasich:
