Reid Coming to South Jersey for Whom?

By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog

Harry ReidYou’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 off, Save Jerseyans.

That’s why Harry Reid will reportedly visit Cherry Hill on August 4th (h/t Matt Friedman) not to stump for Cory Booker, but to attend a fundraiser for Donald Norcross, the Democrat power broker’s brother and a sitting state senator seeking to claim Rob Andrews’s vacated House seat for himself by fending off a challenge from former Eagle Garry Cobb.

The Reid-Norcross connection goes deep; for example, Super PACs staffed by Reid staffers were instrumental in helping N.J. Democrats hold on to their state legislative majority in 2013.

  1. I’m surprised he has the nerve to show his face in southern New Jersey considering the fact that he stands in the way of getting legislation passed that would remove that ridiculous law that prevents Atlantic City from having sports gambling. He is completely against it and has stated so because it would destroy Nevada’s near monopoly on sports gambling.

    Conflict of interest on the sports betting? Shouldn’t he be recused? Well, that will change in November.

  3. Birds of a feather flock together. Harry Reid is what is absolutely 100% wrong with our system. Now we have a sense of why the US Attorney, the FBI, the DOJ, the Gov of NJ, etc stay away from King George. Harry Reid should be in jail.

    SDR, you’re absolutely correct. We don’t need “term” limits – we need limits on “failureship”, set by educating and inspiring the voters to exercise their right and remove such as these.

    As you know, there is a long way to go – but “surrender prevention” by helping increase turn-out from among those who have given up is one pathway to change…and, by change, I don’t mean “exchange”. Simply put, “Trading one master for another makes one no less a slave”, as I have said around the State for years, now.

    The rank and file KNOW who the overlords are – and believe them to be unassailable. The cliffs at Pointe du Hoc looked pretty imposing, too…They’re French, again, though…right?

    We have to stop letting the puppet-masters divide us into “Democrat” or “Republican”, “Liberal” or “Conservative”, rather than “American”.

    If you continue to play that game, you’re part of the problem…

    Like the SeaBees say – “CAN DO”. If you’ve had enough, you know what to do.

  5. Sen Donald Norcross ? Bingo !
