With Election Day behind us and the end of the year approaching, there is still one political question that has yet to be answered: Who will challenge Sen. Cory Booker in next year’s Senate contest? So far, no challenger has emerged, though several…

    “…Knocking off Booker, with his rock star status and Hollywood Rolodex will be a Herculean effort – one that will take a huge fundraising effort on the part of the GOP’s standard bearer. What’s more, New Jersey hasn’t elected a Republican U.S. Senator in 40 years..”

    How much of the 40 year history has to do with the media’s failure to vet and challenge Booker, Menendez, Torricelli, Corzine?

    Reporters don’t do their jobs and we suffer from a lack of competition, cronyism and flat-out corruption.

    I wish the reporters in our state would recognize that we have 3 or 4 mini-Detroits brewing, ready to explode.

    I am not saying these Ds purposely ruined these cities….but they don’t do much other than manage and preside over their incremental and now stunning declines.

    And of course…gather the votes on election day.

    I also challenge this Booker the rock star nonsense.

    Bruce Springsteen is a rock star. He shows up….thousands or real fans. Palin was a rock star and still is in many place….she shows up….thousands of real fans.

    Booker shows up…..50 spectators (carefully shown in the photo as a crowd) (but mostly paid hacks rounded up from the union halls or temp work agencies)

    or to the reporter comments – 50 liberals from California and the Upper West Side with checks to ease their misguided guilt.

    Many think it ok to buy your seat at the Senate with money from Hollywood….
    but we live here and pay the consequences of our Senators being more beholden to out-0f-state donors than our residents.

    I don’t think any of them have a shot of beating Booker. If it were me, I would be looking at someone like a Jenn Beck. Clear ability to attract moderates/independents and female voters.

    Steve Lonegan deserves another shot. He came much closer than anyone expected with no help, no money and no support from the Establishment RINOs. This time the Tea Parties will be unified and mobilized to turn out the vote in overwhelming numbers. There isn’t enough money in all of Hollywood to overcome the will of the people.

    Steve Lonegan? Wow, you guys really drank all of that Koolaid! How many times can one guy be rejected by voters before you realize he can’t win. The people of NJ don’t want him or the Tea Party. That faction will surely relegate the Republican party to the minority for ever if they continue their “RINO” nonsense. We are in a moderate state with a moderate electorate. Don’t like it? Move!
