Remember when Governor Phil Murphy tried to steal from the state’s firefighters? NJGOP Chairman Doug Steinhardt remembers and his press release follows:

Trenton, NJ - The NJGOP is counting down the last 20 days before Election Day in the  2019 Murphy Mid-Terms with 20 reasons New Jersey is weaker and poorer under Governor Phil Murphy and 20 reasons to vote Republican on November 5th.

Reason #19: Governor Murphy Tried To Steal Money From Firefighter Burial Fund

Comment from NJGOP Chairman Doug Steinhardt:

“The NJGOP is proud to fight alongside New Jersey’s first responders, especially after their Governor tried to pay for his laundry list of liberal handouts by stealing $33 million from the Firemen’s Association burial fund. And even though his screwball scheme failed, Phil Murphy’s last second retreat can’t erase his blatant disregard for the hard working men and women who risk their lives to protect our lives. New Jersey voters should be shocked and appalled, but then, hey, this is the same Governor who, last week, said, “If … tax rate is your issue … we’re probably not your state.” You shouldn’t be our Governor either, and your Party’s policies are killing our State.”

100 Grand Buys A Lot Of Condoms; Patterson’s Big Shot Out Of The Gate

I thought about maybe a headline along the lines of “Patterson’s money shot” simply because my sometimes juvenile sense of humor won’t let me forget that CD2 congressional candidate Robert “Bob” Patterson once wrote that “semen-exposed women have better cognitive skills” and that “condom use deprives women of the remarkable chemicals in semen.

It’s a shame because Patterson, when you meet him, is a likable guy, a bit of a close talker, but a nice guy. Unfortunately, some of his old writings are good for laugh lines to easy to pass on.

That said, once you get past the laugh lines, Patterson has earned a little respect by shockingly raising slightly more than $100,000 in his first fundraising quarter. I honestly didn’t think he had it in him.

Patterson’s respectful 100k means he is no longer an afterthought in next year’s CD2 primary.

And, let’s not forget we do have a new frontrunner in next year’s CD2 primary. David Richter, after posting more than $400,000 this quarter, raised and self-funded, has been attacked as “hoity-toity” by the fancy suit wearing hoity-toity Congressman Jeff Van Drew.

I previously wrote in this blog that “in politics money can buy love and catapults your campaign to frontrunner status,” add to that being the only candidate attacked by Van Drew and there is no doubt Richter has assumed the role of frontrunner ahead of the CD2 primary.

The only question left in CD2, at least for now, is how Brian Fitzherbert responds to his primary election opponents. We know Fitzherbert can build a strong organization, now we’ll see if it converts to fundraising in the fourth quarter.

Note: While Bob has endorsed Brian Fitzherbert for next year’s CD2 primary, Steve is completely neutral and making no endorsement

This could be fun! It appears NJGOP Chairman Doug Steinhardt is going to bash NJ Democrats for 20 straight days. Kind of reminds me of the time I invented “NACO-gate” for my radio show co-host former Cumberland GOP Chairman Bob Greco. It’s just another reason to like Steinhardt. The Chairman’s press release follows:

Trenton, NJ - The NJGOP is counting down the last 20 days before Election Day in the  2019 Murphy Mid-Terms with 20 reasons New Jersey is weaker and poorer under Governor Phil Murphy and 20 reasons to vote Republican on November 5th.

Reason #20: New Jersey Has The Worst Foreclosure Rate In The U.S.

Comment from NJGOP Chairman Doug Steinhardt:

"Phil Murphy and Democrats have had full control of the state house for 2 years now. Their liberal agenda has produced the highest foreclosure rate in the country. New Jersey is too expensive, and Phil Murphy, who said “If ... tax rate is your issue ... we’re probably not your state,” is too aloof, for hard working families to afford their homes. This is the danger of one-party rule in Trenton."
