PolitickerNJ is a virtual watercooler for the state’s political elite – officeholders, news makers, staff, party leaders, fundraisers, journalists, government employees, interest groups and policy wonks. It’s a necessary daily stop for politically-minded web surfers.
Since our launch on February 1, 2000, PoliticsNJ.com, now PolitickerNJ.com, has become a fixture of politics and government in New Jersey for people who want current and reliable information about campaigns, elections and politicians in New Jersey. Like Tip O'Neill, PolitickerNJ views all politics as local. Starting at City Hall and ending at the White House, we cover elections, party leadership contests, lobbyists, fundraisers, the media, and the business of how politicians select judges and prosecutors. We offer a close-up view inside politics for political insiders.
In March 2011, PolitickerNJ introduced State Street Wire, a legislative wire service designed for government affairs professionals. Drawing on one of the largest bureaus at the State House, State Street Wire provides the most comprehensive coverage of New Jersey politics and government available. State Street Wire premium content is designed to give businesses a competitive edge, including gavel-to-gavel session summaries, weekly advances and recaps, a daily schedule of events, and customized email alerts.
