As a blogger and political strategist I’ve been credited with writing, in real time, the political obituaries, of many candidates and office holders, Democrats and some Republicans, in Monmouth and Ocean Counties.
This weekend I am sadly tasked with writing the real obituary for my father, Arthur V.

In a phone interview with MMM this morning, Congressman Chris Smith, R-NJ 4, said that published reports by New Jersey Globe and SaveJersey claiming that he voted with Democrats to reopen the federal government without funding a wall for our southern border are incomplete and inaccurate.
“I am a strong supporter of securing our southern border, including the wall–I voted for $5.7 billion for the wall in December-– and have been throughout my career,” Smith said. “The bill I voted for yesterday, H J Res 1, would fund the only Department of Homeland Security and only until February 9.”Art Gallagher | Filed under: Chris Smith, Monmouth County News, New Jersey | Tags: Build the wall, Congressman Chris Smith, Department of Homeland Security, DHS, Donald Trump, Immigration, NewJerseyGlobe, President Trump, SaveJersey.com | 6 Comments »
