OPIOID CRISIS: Rooney Aims at Alleged Loophole in Christie’s Painkiller Reform

Is there a missing component to Gov. Chris Christie’s 5-day limit on painkiller prescriptions?

Kevin Rooney […]

Here are the four districts N.J. Republicans think they can flip in 2017

LD7: Dewedoff Passes On N.J. Assembly Bid

Diane Allen‘s imminent retirement has turned New Jersey’s 7th Legislative District into a heavy favorite for a Democrat State Senate pick-up this year, Save Jerseyans, and one of the Burlco GOP’s preferred recruits to steal Democrat State Senator-in-waiting Troy Singleton‘s soon-to-be-vacated Assembly seat on the way out the door ultimately declined to file petitions on Monday.

Atlantic Democrats Concede to Brown? Apparently. Visit Their Website….

Asm. Chris Brown (R-2) should be a long-shot for State Senate this year, Save Jerseyans. His district has a Democrat voter registration advantage and Democrats remain favored to take back the governor’s mansion this November. But a combination of strong leadership from Brown and Democrat in-fighting have transformed LD2 into a prime Republican pick-up opportunity. Atlantic […]

OPINION: Support Free Enterprise? Support Hank Lyon

It’s a tale as old as time, or at least as old as a few decades, that New Jersey has the highest taxes in the country. That fact, coupled with the regulatory burden applied at every level of government, makes this state a tough place for small businesses to work and be profitable. The struggle […]

Trenton Dems Vote for Trump’s Tax Returns (But Won’t Disclose Their Own)

Assembly GOP Leader Jon Bramnick’s premise was simple: If Democrats want to make income tax disclosure a prerequisite for presidential campaign N.J. ballot access, then why not make legislative and gubernatorial candidates reveal their tax returns, too? Of course not! Because the point is taking political cheap shots at President Trump, not “transparency.” Bramnick’s motion was […]

Freeholder Hank Lyon seized upon Tuesday’s release of the AFP-NJ 2017 legislative scorecard to razz incumbent Assemblywoman Betty Lou DeCroce (R-26) for pulling down a “D” grade. “Despite representing one of the most conservative districts in our state, Assemblywoman DeCroce fought for the recent 23-cent per gallon gas tax hike and has voted for bigger […]

Yup, DeCroce is Officially in Danger After Lyon’s Strong Passaic Finish.

LD39 and LD40 are rightly getting a lot of attention lately, Save Jerseyans, and veteran Republican politico/former Councilman John McCann‘s major upset win last night in Passaic County merits further discussion. But for the small but strong community of conservative activists in New Jersey? Still peeved over the gas tax hike and equally nauseated over Republican […]
