We Respectfully Disagree With Lincoln Day Dinner Speakers
There ARE Other Candidates For President
Gingrich Campaign Organizing New Jersey
We read with a slight tone of amusement, this morning’s post and comments here on MMM about last night’s Monmouth County Lincoln Day Dinner. The first thought that came to our mind is this, “Fellow Republicans, is there not a Primary scheduled for June where THE PEOPLE get to decide on who N.J. wants as their Presidential candidate?”
We’ll not comment on some of the comments at Sunday night’s Monmouth County Lincoln Day Dinner because such “heated passion & exuberance” is often expected, although often over the top.
We’re just not going to be distracted by such attempts from the Romney camp to grab the media spot light.
What we are here to say is that YES, there is a Primary in N.J. and that primary WILL include a very strong contest by the Newt Gingrich Campaign
The Newt 2012 campaign has actually been on the ground for more than a couple of weeks and just recently finalized its leadership team. We are collecting ballot petition signatures and going door to door talking with the voters rather than the leadership. After all, it’s the voters that make the decision
And, New Jersey’s voters deserve a Conservative choice on the primary ballot, not someone who claims to be a “Severe Conservative,” yet has a record as liberal as they come.
So, while Newt Gingrich continues to promote his candidacy, vowing to go all the way to the convention; and despite the Conventional Wisdom which says that a Romney NJ win is guaranteed, in N.J., Newt’s N.J. supporters will fight for each and every delegate to bring the 2012 Presidential Nomination home for Newt Gingrich. Only a Clear Conservative Choice between President Obama and our nominee will bring the win home for Republicans in November. Newt Gingrich is not only best suited to win, but deliver on his platform as he did in the past, creating jobs and balancing the budget. Newt has the experience to get the job done while bringing bold ideas to the table.
Not only are we asking grass roots volunteers and supporters to be with Newt, we are also building a slate of delegates for Newt, so Newt’s supporters are welcome to contact us as soon as possible if they are interested in standing as a delegate for Newt at the convention in Tampa, Florida.
Wouldn’t it be nice for N.J.’s Presidential Primary to actually mean something this year? You can start to see that happens by getting involved in making sure a true Conservative is on the ballot this June, and help us to fight for the Party of Reagan.
We’ll soon get to work on defining Newt’s message of REAL Conservatism while we illustrate the differences between Newt & other candidates real soon, but right now, we’ll be working on putting Newt on the ballot with a full slate of delegates and discounting such “puffery” exhibited at the Lincoln Day Dinner.
Don’t fall in line as sheep. Investigate and decide for yourself. Be Bold, Be Brave & Fight For Conservatism Like Newt Does In The Following Video. It says it ALL about there being a lot more to happen with this primary season.
Newt Supporters, Contact The Organizing Committee Today & Say YES, We Want A Primary In N.J. Without A Pre-ordained Candidate.

The Abraham Lincoln impersonator played second fiddle to U.S. Senate candidate Joe Kyrillos at the Monmouth County Lincoln Day Dinner last night in Atlantic Highlands.
The annual dinner is named for Lincoln. Lt. Governor Kim Guadagno was the keynote speaker. The night belonged to Kyrillos. The name of Monmouth County’s favorite son who is challenging Bob Menendez for one of New Jersey’s seats in the United States Senate was stuck on most lapels and his photograph was prominently projected on the wall behind the stage.
The Republican faithful who had not already signed Kyrillos’ nominating petitions at his campaign kickoff were lining up to do so.
The enthusiasm for Kyrillos, who is on the verge of exceeding the required 1000 signatures required to get on the primary ballot stood in stark contrast to the reception that his potential primary opponent, former Highlands Mayor Anna Little, received while working the Lincoln Day crowd.
Working the very same room where she defiantly refused to concede defeat in 2010, but rather declared a 2012 rematch against Congressman Frank Pallone, Little and her manager, Larry Cirigano, struggled to get signatures on her U.S. Senate nominating petition. Little resorted to erroneously telling polite Kyrillos supporters that it was OK to sign more than one nominating petition for the same race.
Any signatures that appear on more than one nominating petition will be invalidated should the petitions be challenged.
Little received polite applause during the ritual roll call acknowledgement of present and former elected officials. Kyrillos received a standing ovation during his introduction of Guadagno.

There were at least unhappy four people of the approximately 500 Republicans celebrating Lincoln Day in Monmouth County last night.
Bayshore Tea Party Group Co-founders, Barbara Gonzalez and Bob Gordon, along with their opposite sex spouses, Frank Gonzalez and Lynn Gordon stood up during Lt. Governor Kim Guadagno’s speech and quietly walked out of the Shore Casino in Atantic Highlands.
The Tea Partiers were upset about the support of Mitt Romney expressed by Guadagno and other speakers.
In an email to BTPG members sent after the event, Gonzalez said,
Some of us attended the Lincoln Dinner this evening, which is a republican event, held at the Shore Casino.
Four of us walked out during Lt Governor’s speech. Why?
Well, first, one speaker got up and told us how no other candidate is worth a crap and how Romney is the only one we should support. Then, the Lt Governor got up and spewed the same garbage.
The four of us that walked out were appalled. This was a disgraceful way for the republican party to act. There are three other candidates running on the republican ticket. How dare they.
That being said, what are you going to do about it? Are you going to let them dictate who we should be voting for? Whether you support Gingrich, Santorum or Paul, you should hopefully be working your butt off for them.
We are actively doing some work for Santorum from the office if anyone is interested. Helene is the county leader, so contact her or reply to me if you want to help. I can tell you this….my passion to have Santorum win has just been increased by what I saw this evening.
Hell hath no fury like a woman being told who to vote for!
Other speakers who spoke in support of Romney were New Jersey National Republican Committeeman Bill Palatucci and Congressman Chris Smith.
