TRENTON, NJ – With the greatly-reduced Republican legislative caucus at its lowest point in decades, intense Democrat infighting is dominating the discussion in Trenton. The minority party is close to irrelevant on most votes and major policy debates.
NJGOP Chairman Doug Steinhardt affirmed on Thursday that that’s a real problem for taxpayers, but he also hinted that the issue goes far deeper than party affiliation.
“Governor Murphy and Democrat leaders in the legislature are locked into a war over power, not ideas. New Jersey desperately needs ideological diversity in the State house,” said Steinhardt. “Instead of racing to control more taxpayer dollars, our leaders in Trenton should be racing to find ways to send those dollars back into the pockets of middle class families and small businesses. One party rule is failing the people of New Jersey and it’s time for voters to send a conservative check and balance to the legislature. New Jersey deserves honest solutions to real problems.”
