Republicans Rally in Atlantic City

IMG_2194Atlantic City– With Governor Chris Christie out of the country, New Jersey’s snow covered roads remained opened and approximately 1000 Republican activists, and a few guest Democrats, from all corners of the state gathered in Atlantic City today to nurture their dream of hitting the jackpot and winning a majority of seats in the General Assembly in November.

Under a banner that reads DON’T MOVE.  Lower Taxes Are On The Way. VOTE ASSEMBLY REPUBLICANS., Assembly Minority Leader Jon Bramnick met with reporters prior to the kickoff of his convention.  Bramnick said he would welcome an election theme that was a referendum on Governor Christie’s record in Trenton since 2010, saying that the Democrats who control both houses of the legislature stopped cooperating with Christie on his reform agenda.

NJ Bramnick acknowledged that the legislative map makes winning a majority in the Assembly a challenge, but not impossible. “We’re planning to win the majority,” Bramnick said.

The Minority Leader said that Christie had pledged his 100% support to the Assembly Republican Caucus’s efforts in November.

“Christie is a great friend, ” Bramnick said, “If you’re straight with him and look him in the eye, there is no better friend than Chris Christie.”

Bramnick said that he would change his vote on the Port Authority Reform Bill that Christie vetoed in late December should an override vote come before the Assembly. “Absolutely, I would support the Governor’s position and and change my vote.”

Bramnick issued a challenge to Assembly Speaker Vincent Prieto to join him in raising the public’s awareness that there is an election in November by participating in debates.

    Not sure that bragging about how one will not stand on principle and not vote to override Christie’s veto is a formula for winning elections…not exactly a profile in courage.

    Corzine once made a promise to lower property taxes 10% every year for 3 years …Mc Greevey ,was to bulldoze the toll booths ,Christie promised to lower property taxes as well as many others .Our politicians keep making promises they refuse to keep I wish they would make rider to those promises that they would resign if they failed to keep their promise as well !

    I would like my taxes to be lower but with the state only making a fraction of its required pension contributions, the transportation trust fund broke and numerous other problems being neglected, the chances of a tax cut are zero

    I see no mention of New Jersey’s Tea Party/Conservative leaders like Steve Lonegan, Seth Grossman, Barbara Gonzalez, and many others. Were they excluded, or simply didn’t waste their time partying like Country Club RINOs?
