It’s that time of year, Save Jerseyans.
Eager politicians are opening their fall campaign headquarters in otherwise unassuming, shabbily decorated and barely broom-swept strip mall storefronts across the United States.
Inside and often at strange hours, college-aged interns are busy assembling yard signs. Volunteers are lighting up rented phone lines. Office staffers are worried about whether there’s enough yard signs to lure in volunteers for phone banking.
It’s positively magical!
How else can you explain dozens of human surviving on nothing but Red Bull, pizza and donuts for six months?
Tonight, South Jersey’s own U.S. Rep. Jon Runyan (R-N.J.) is officially opening the doors of his own HQ in the Burlington County suburb of Marlton. The former Philadelphia Eagle will kick things off between 7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.; the office is located at the Marlton Greene Shopping Plaza, 22 Route 70 West. I don’t know if there’ll be pizza, but I can guarantee plenty of good, like-minded company.
