Conforti takes the gloves off in CD-4 Dem primary

By Art Gallagher

The race for the Democrat nomination to take on Congressman Chris Smith in CD-4 has been boring since former Asbury Park Councilman Jim Keady dropped out in January. Until very recently.

Christine Conforti is a wholistic business coach and Georgetown grad from Ocean Grove, who has been funding her congressional campaign with $4 and $40 donations. She just started drawing a contrast between herself and the presumped front runner, Stephanie Schmid. Today, Conforti has finally started to expose one of Stephanie Schmid’s biggest weaknesses—her horrendous environmental record as a defense attorney for executives involved in the Deepwater Horizon oil spill.

Conforting, has the endorsement of the Mercer County Democrats, Our Revolution-Monmouthand local climate groups.

Schmid, who said she’s funding her campaign from donations from generous ex-boyfriends, has the endorsement of the Monmouth County and Ocean County Democrats and the favorable ballot position that comes along with those endorsements. Schmid is also endorsed by the hate group known as District 4 Coalition for Change.

The other candidate running in the Democrat CD-4 primary, David Applefield, says he’s a problem solver and he wants voters to consider his ideas before casting their vote. His ideas include getting Exxon/Mobile to fund New Jersey’s budget deficit and to “mine” the stock market raise money for New Jersey’s budget by charging a fraction of a penny fee on every stock traded through computers located in New Jersey.

Conforting started drawing a contrast between herself and Schmid last week with the below graphic that highlights some of their differences.

Schmid is likely to prevail, given her organizational support in Monmouth and Ocean. But anything could happen in this unprecedented vote-by-mail primary.

    Have at it folks, it’s the process. My guess is, no one beats our great Congressman Chris Smith. I do not say this lightly: some long- termers just coast back in on name ID, with little to show for their taking up space and producing nil.( speaking of you, “Lucky Frank”.) Chris Smith has literally busted his butt for three decades for his district and country, on important issues of the day. Does this mean take his voters for granted? He never would. Never see one damn article on any positive advances made by Frank, in some thirty-plus years, btw. Favorable re-districting sure helped him, too. Likely one of the luckiest guys in our dear Congress, for sure!.. no sense even bothering to ask CD 6 to wake up, they are clueless, and likely to remain so…

    Feel better? I read it, I’m listening.

  3. Disagree? said at 9:09 am on June 18th, 2020:

    Name one real,positive,good thing Frank ever did in office- any office. No, won’t feel better til he’s retired/ out of there- and many others, just like him.

    Speaking of Chris Smith he needs to decide if he will continue to be a Trump enabler or will he join the ranks of those Republicans who have had the guts and courage to speak out when they see wrongdoing by the President?? I’m not a big fan of Bolton but believe he is telling the truth.

  5. Of course said at 7:42 pm on June 18th, 2020:

    you believe Bolton. Always accepting the left’s negative, surface narratives.. His sour- grapes firing claims will be fuel for all who already hate the President. Fine. His supporters will only be more ready to get out to win .. Guess what? Chris wasn’t originally for Trump, but is both a team- player, and finds more to support than not, in the President’s initiatives,which he promised, has delivered on many, and got elected for, in the first place. Chris is at polar opposites with the extreme left’s dangerous agenda- so, has to help where he can. “Nancy’s Ninnies” sure aren’t making life easy for anyone but the rioters, looters, and other criminals we are horrified by, every day. Time will tell the results.

    Been some decent weather lately, perhaps you should take a stroll outside for a few minutes, unglue yourself from your favorite cable news network.

  7. Don’t tell anyone else said at 9:40 am on June 19th, 2020:

    what to do: you sound like a typical pompous, judgmental lib…it will be a fine day when you are all beaten at the polls, again…

  8. Perhaps you could said at 10:45 am on June 20th, 2020:

    not tell other people what to do.

  9. Don’t tell said at 10:18 pm on June 22nd, 2020:

    others who give a damn what to do..don’t you see, on a daily basis, we are in the fight for our country’s entire way of life?

    are you angrily shaking your fist at this week

    If you don’t see that, you can get a cheap ticket to Venezuela, to check out how great it will soon be,here.

  12. So said at 1:21 pm on June 23rd, 2020:

    you think Fascism is the the same as Socialism? Please drop some more knowledge bombs on me, I’m all ears!

  13. No. said at 7:07 pm on June 23rd, 2020:

    In short, socialism is more economic, controlling though it is, such as are many re- distributive programs already existing, while fascism goes further in all aspects of life, as these paid agitators are, to control everyone’s thought, speech, livelihood, taking anything from anyone, to further their control. Kind of like how the current trends are going, in the thought police, speech police, stopping any opposing views, wiping out, by any means they deem necessary, any opposition to their “perfect world” of domination.. welcome to CHOP, and /or wherever else it goes down. If ok with you, go ahead, pick on others who are concerned, or say/ do nothing- while you still have a measure of freedom to do that …

    does the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia have to do with this bizarre mess that you copy and pasted off a couple white power Reddit threads??
