I’m going to have this tune stuck in my head all week, Save Jerseyans, because your Blogger-in-Chief is en route to the Big D.
Why am I headed to Dallas? In August, no less? On Labor Day Weekend? All fair questions! And before you ask, it has nothing to do with my decision to draft Jason Witten for my 2014 fantasy football squad.
The real answer: Save Jersey is proudly participating in the Defending the American Dream Summit hosted by our friends at Americans for Prosperity. The annual program runs on August 29th and 30th; it’s an unrivaled opportunity for economic conservatives from all 50 states (2,800+ conference-goers are pre-enrolled) to gather and compare notes in a crucial midterm election year.
AFP’s extensive speaker list includes, among others, Sen. Rand Paul, Dr. Ben Carson and the man of the hour, Governor Rick Perry.
You can also rest assured that yours truly is going to find an obnoxiously large steak at some point. Count on it.
So go ahead and check back for updates, anecdotes, and assorted elevated reflections throughout the weekend in between your Labor Day barbecuing and beaching, y’all. Here at Save Jersey, of course, but also on our Facebook page and via our Twitter handle, @SaveJersey and my personal page: @MattRooneyNJ.
