NJGOP Chairman Doug Steinhardt issued a response to Governor Phil Murphy’s attack on the Second Amendment. His press release follows:

Trenton, NJ - Today, Governor Murphy signed an Executive Order attacking the Second Amendment. NJGOP Chairman released the following statement in response:

“Like most sensible New Jerseyans, the NJGOP also supports common sense gun laws, but once again Governor Murphy shows his inability to take aim at gun crime and instead continues his practice of targeting legal gun owners.

"Today’s Executive Order is big on bravado and short on substance. It creates the same false sense of security that the rest of his political pandering creates.

“On behalf of the NJGOP, I call on Governor Murphy to do something meaningful to combat gun crime and stop criminalizing gun owners, manufacturers and retailers.”

NJGOP Chairman Doug Steinhardt slammed Congressman Malinowski for comments the Congressman made about mowing “our beautiful lawns.” The NJGOP press release follows:

Trenton, NJ - Following reports and video footage of Congressman Malinowski stating that we need illegal immigrants to “mow our beautiful lawns” and laughing at the idea of his educated audience mowing lawns, NJGOP Chairman Doug Steinhardt had the following strong message for the Congressman:

"Plenty of legal New Jersey residents landscape for a living or cut their own grass. They would all be mortified by your limousine liberal, elitist comments. You drawing a parallel between one's intellectual capacity and their willingness to do manual labor just shows how out of touch you are with your constituents. We are all coming to understand what it means to have a Congressman who rents in New Jersey and lives in Washington, and we don't like it. Apologize for your offensive comments if you want, but we all see you now Congressman."

PRESS RELEASE: NJGOP Chairman: Democrats Are Holding A Session To Rig Elections

Today NJGOP Chairman Doug Steinhardt smacked state Democrats over a special voting session to change the State's vote-by-mail laws. The press release follows:

Trenton, NJ - Next week, the Democrat controlled New Jersey Legislature will hold a special voting session to change the State's vote-by-mail laws. Earlier last week, Democrat Secretary of State Tahesha Way ruled that voters who requested VBM in 2017 and 2018 must reapply if they want mail-in ballots for the November general election. That angered the State’s Democratic legislative leaders, who’ve been trying for years to rig the State’s election process and perpetuate their majority.

So, Democrat legislators intend to pass a hurried law that will require anyone who opted to receive a VBM ballot in either 2017 or 2018 to also be automatically registered to vote by mail in 2019. 

It is important to note that vote-by-mail applicants in all counties have an option to register to VBM in perpetuity. The legislation that Democrats aim to pass next week will automatically add voters to the permanent VBM rolls who intentionally skipped that option. 

NJ Globe reported that, "Including the 2017 and 2018 vote-by-mail universe for 2019, traditionally an off-off year when it comes to voter turnout, would be hugely advantageous to Democrats. Election results show that in key legislative races, the Democratic advantage could be as much as 70%." Of course it would. 

NJGOP Chairman Doug Steinhardt released the following statement on this matter:

"Democrat politicians in Trenton are trying to rig New Jersey's elections. It’s that simple. They are weaponizing the legislature and waging an all out war against voters’ free will by selectively sending ballots to the people and places their policies prey on. This is the danger of one party rule."

Earlier this year, Democrats created a new law for automatic voter registration. Any New Jersey residents that visit certain state agencies like the Motor Vehicle Commission will automatically be registered to vote.

Chairman Steinhardt continued, "On behalf of the NJGOP, we are calling on the legislature to expand the scope of this special legislative session. Automatic voter registration should be expanded to people who purchase hunting and fishing licenses, business licenses or construction permits, not just the demographics to whom you hope to sell your seats. Who needs the Russians to meddle in US elections when you have NJ Democrats."
