We've changed our name and our look.
PoliticsNJ.com is now PolitickerNJ.com -- a reflection of our desire to produce news even more rapidly, and to be consistent with some of our new state political websites. We launched PolitickerNV.com on Monday, and PolitickerME.com will start next week.
The rest of our site remains the same: Max Pizarro, Matt Friedman, Rob Tornoe, Wally Edge and our team of columnists and bloggers. We're pleased to be adding Prof. Joseph Marbach this month.
We look forward to continuing to be your source of political news in New Jersey, and hope that you'll find that our new design will help you navigate the state political scene more easily.
While you will still be able to reach this site through our old URL, at your convenience, please start to change your bookmarks. And as always, please feel free to contact us if you have any questions or comments.Read More >
