The South Jersey Democratic Party beast claimed the bloody mantle of most powerful non-elected official in New Jersey this week as Number 1 on PolitickerNJ.com’s Power List.
Every incumbent in the state is up by double digits. That’s the nature of incumbency a year after redistricting with the state’s one casualty (Steve Rothman) already accounted for. But a Stockton poll this week shows the 2nd Congressional District Republican crushing his opponent, 54-34%.
The Bergen County freeholder candidate went into a political nosedive after declaring publicly that the late Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. wasn’t an ethical man.
Relentlessly campaigning for red state Republicans nationally, the New Jersey governor finds himself handcuffed now to Indiana Senate candidate Richard Mourdock, who this week claimed that pregnancy resulting from rape is “something God intended” and is “a gift from God.” A long-cowed New Jersey Democratic Party delegation suddenly has the infuriated moral high ground.
COUNTY PARTY COMMITTEES
County fundraising is at a five-year low as state election officials say next year’s gubernatorial and legislative showdowns have trumped national politics. Preliminary numbers show that Republicans and Democrats together raised nearly $3.7 million and spent less than $3.2 million in the first three quarters, according to the New Jersey Election Law Enforcement Commission.
Superior Court Judge John A. Casarow this week issued 13 of 27 complaints that Assemblyman Paul Moriarty (D-4) filed against the officer who arrested him this past summer for DWI. The charges against the Washington Township Patrolman include filing false reports, committing acts of perjury, tampering with public records, and committing official misconduct.
Reeling in her little-discussed challenge of incumbent U.S. Rep. Frank Pallone (D-6), Little’s one chance at a demagogic rush with unfurled anti-Pallone banners waving in a booing audience would have been at a scheduled League of Women Voters forum. But it was canceled. Date doesn’t work.

By HAYTHAM YOUNES As the May 13th election for Paterson officials nears, I've noticed a lot of candidates running using slogans and empty promises as if they weren't around watching Paterson get to where it's at today. I think it's important that... Read More >
"This is my first Mark Smith event. There have been a lot of changes in Hudson County over the last year and a half, and the most important change that has happened is that there really is unity. For the first time, we really are working together. Despite political differences. Mark and I have worked very hard to repair that.
