Announced Republican candidate for US Senate Tricia Flanagan called out US Senator Cory Booker for inviting Governor Phil Murphy to campaign in Iowa. She says, “Booker’s actions don’t match his rhetoric on women’s rights.” Her press release follows:

LAWRENCEVILLE – Republican candidate for U.S. Senate, Tricia Flanagan, said that U.S. Senator Cory Booker bringing New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy on the Iowa campaign trail doesn’t match the Senator’s rhetoric on women’s rights.

Tricia Flanagan asked, “Does Senator Booker not remember the time he stood before a crowd in Iowa and attacked President Trump saying, ‘We’re not defined by a president who does not believe women?’”

“I remember! I and many other women are wondering why Cory Booker is campaigning with a Governor who clearly does not believe women.” Flanagan said, “We remember the governor’s women’s professional soccer team and the shoddy conditions, including some players being forced to live with an elderly man who made inappropriate comments. We all know Murphy defended his staff’s atrocious handling of Katie Brennan’s sexual assault allegations. And, let’s not forget Allison Kopicki who resigned from the Murphy administration because of ‘discrimination and hostility.’”

Flanagan asked, “By inviting Governor Murphy to campaign with him is Cory Booker suggesting we are defined by a governor who does not believe women?

“That’s certainly what his actions say.” Flanagan said. “Clearly, it’s time for Cory Booker to stop with the rhetoric, end his vanity presidential campaign and come home to discuss the issues important to New Jerseyeans. I’m ready when he is.”

PRESS RELEASE: Gloucester County Republican Chairwoman Declares A Victory In Re-Building Effort

Press Release.jpg

Gloucester County Democrats thought they were going to coast to a win in this year’s freeholder campaign without competition. The Republicans had other plans and declared victory in their re-building efforts today. Chairwoman Jacci Vigilante’s press release on the issue follows:

MULLICA HILL – Gloucester County Republican Chairwoman Jacci Vigilante announced today voters will have a choice on November’s ballot for freeholder.

The issue was in doubt because on April 3, 2019 John Alice, Counsel to the Gloucester County Democratic Committee, challenged the nominating petition of Republicans Diane M. King and Andrea K. Sammons. Unfortunately, after that challenge King and Sammons were tossed from the ballot forcing Republicans to mount a write-in campaign.

“Every year petitions get challenged, I understand that, but typically challenges are party affairs with candidates trying to clear the field in a primary much like the establishment Democrats did to the progressive Democrats in Camden County,” Jacci Vigilante said. “Rarely does one party challenge the petitions of the other party, which tells me the Gloucester County Democratic Organization fears facing two strong women candidates in the era of #MeToo and #BelieveWomen.”

“Fortunately, our Republican County Committee stepped up and mounted an aggressive write-in campaign to ensure voters are not deprived of a choice in November.” Vigilante added, “County Democrats failed in their efforts to deny choices to the voters.”

“Preventing the Democrats’ efforts to deny a choice for freeholder in the general election is just one victory in our re-building efforts,’ Vigilante said. “Our Republican County Committee fought back and won. Moving forward with strong candidates, not just at the freeholder level, but in several municipalities throughout the county we are looking forward to more victories in November.”

If A Group Of South Jersey Women Show Up To Protest Gov. Murphy And The Press Ignores It Did The Protest Really Happen?

Gov. Phil Murphy

Gov. Phil Murphy

Earlier this week Governor Phil Murphy found his way to South Jersey, specifically Cherry Hill, to outline his tax incentive policy.

The claim was he chose Cherry Hill because there is a business incubator, 1776, in the Cherry Hill Mall. The business incubator may do a good job, but what do we know?

We knew Murphy was coming to South Jersey and were a little offended that his staff didn’t think to invite two guys with a political talk radio program in South Jersey. Maybe he was afraid of the questions we might ask.

What we do know, and everybody with half a brain knows, is that Murphy chose the location because it’s in the heart of “Norcross Country.”

Don’t take our word for it. NJTV News was very direct about it:

Gov. Phil Murphy and South Jersey power broker George Norcross have been locked in a battle over tax incentives.

The latest salvo came Wednesday as Murphy visited a business incubator in the Cherry Hill Mall, Norcross country, to lay out the broad strokes of a new tax incentive policy.

“Instead of a system that benefits only a few actors and the unsustainable rates that hurt our ability to invest in our core values, let’s enact a new system that works for the broad array of businesses, but even more for the broad array of our communities,” Murphy said.

While we are happy that NJTV News, and others, picked up on the obvious, they all missed something we feel was important.

A group of ladies showed up to protest Murphy over complete with signs with messages that included, “We believe Katie,” “Fire Matt Platkin” and “Shame, shame, shame Murphy failed women.”

We have no idea who these protesting ladies are. We don’t know their political affiliation. We are proud of these ladies for standing up to the Governor.

Here at the Bob & Steve Show we’ve mentioned the mistreatment of women on Murphy’s professional soccer team close to 40 times and have dwelled on the fact that Murphy’s rhetoric doesn’t match his actions when it comes to women.

We think it’s wrong that the mainstream press ignored these women protesting the Governor. Of course, if we had been invited they would have had a voice.
