About our special election show last night, I think it was pretty much as advertised. Three pretty competitive Congressional races in a state where you’re lucky to get one among our 13 seats in any given election year.
But national politics looks to have played here as well so the 3rd, 6th and 12th (see previous post) didn’t disappoint in terms of drama at least early in the night when early returns showed the Republicans sweeping the Democratic incumbents out of all three. (more…)

No one, to my knowledge, has given next Tuesday’s general election any kind of nickname or nom de guerre, if you will, but to paraphrase the late Ed Sullivan, it’s going to be a really big show.
Our live election night coverage beginning at 8 on NJN as well as on our website (njn.net) and NJN radio should be fun, lively and engaging. So be sure to tune in if you have any interest at all in state, national and even local politics as this one plays out.
Pundits to the left, right and center are all predicting a landslide victory for the Republicans to the point where flipping Democratic control of the House of Representatives is virtually guaranteed and a 10-seat swing for control of the Senate — unthinkable a few months back — is considered at least an outside shot.
Here in New Jersey there are three House races where all three Democratic incumbents are, if not on the ropes, at least running scared. (more…)

I thought it might be of interest to NJN viewers to talk about the decision that was made to carry live on our air and on the internet the public hearings convened by the special legislative task force delving into the future of New Jersey Network. I was among those who advocated for it.
We’ve carried the first two in their entirety — the first Tuesday at the State House in Trenton; the second yesterday at Richard Stockton College in Pomona, Atlantic County — and plan to carry the third in its entirety next Thursday beginning at 6 p.m. from Montclair, Essex County.

Lawmakers are getting together again today for one of those rare summer session days.
The full state Senate has a session today, August 23rd.
The Assembly Budget Committee had a big confab Aug. 5, largely to bring attention to public worker pension systems that are in deep deficit and Gov. Christie’s decision not to put in his budget the $3 billion payment due from the state (Christie says he doesn’t want to contribute until fixes are made); part of that $11 billion budget gap the administration says it closed.

Getting started blogging for me has been kinda like getting your rhythm together to step in and jump rope when you’ve got someone on each end looping that rope ’round and ’round for ya. Just when do you jump in?
Well, I’ve procrastinated long enough and figure it’s time to get with the 2000’s and get bloggin’ with the rest of the media crowd I’ve spent the last 25 years or more hangin’ out with. And to get in step with the so many others who blog, too; some of them for a living and for some smaller number a pretty darned good living at that from what I hear. (more…)
