Frelinghuysen’s Democrat challenger received $$$ from Gropy Al Franken’s PAC

It’s more than a little ironic that U.S. Senator Al Franken (D-MN) founded a political action committee called the “Midwest Values PAC,” Save Jerseyans, particularly in light of the release of a 2006 photograph showing the  former comedian groping the chest of journalist Leeann Tweeden while Tweeden defenselessly slept on a USO tour flight.

For the second time since its deliberations began, Save Jerseyans, the Menendez jury appears to have deadlocked in Newark, and a mistrial in the senior New Jersey U.S. Senator’s corruption trial now appears extremely likely.

Groups like the N.J. Chamber, NJLM need to stop being part of the problem

Time for some tough love, Save Jerseyans… Most of the New Jersey political universe is in Atlantic City this week, waking up to a vicious hangover this morning after last night’s New Jersey State League of Municipalities Convention decadent, booze-infused receptions.

POLL: Of this list… who’s the best GOP candidate for LoBo’s NJ-02 seat?

Frank LoBiondo’s decision not to seek reelection in New Jersey’s 2nd Congressional District next year throws one of the state’s safe(r) Republican seats into toss-up mode (or, arguably, a lean Democrat position if national trends persist AND Jeff Van Drew gets in the race which is expected any day now). None of that was a […]

Parsing this year’s rare GOP victory in Paramus

Last Tuesday night was not what would be described as a great election night for Republicans. We now have two choices: (1) we can riot in the streets and put on goofy hats like our friends on the Left or (2) we can figure out what we need to do to change things. I for […]
