Langschultz is giving Gordon a tough fight in LD38, and the incumbent’s reaction is ‘deplorable’

Bob Gordon (D-38) is growing desperate down the final stretch of Election 2017, Save Jerseyans. Desperate may actually be an understatement.

Sweeney’s not-so-veiled shot at Murphy foreshadows the N.J. Democrats’ wars to come

When Phil Murphy declared grapefruit and broccoli his favorite produce at the second gubernatorial debate, Save Jerseyans, trolling inevitably (and quite justly) ensued on Pro-Guadagno side of the aisle.

Corrado (finally) joins the N.J. State Senate

Kristin Corrado became LD40’s State Senator-elect on July 26th, Save Jerseyans, but thanks to some high-level ‘Game of Thrones’ style, only-in-New Jersey level nonsense concerning a turf war between Democrats in Passaic County and South Jersey (Max Pizarro explains it all right here), she didn’t get to join the State Senate until… today. “I would […]
