OUR TAKE ON THE NEWS IN NEW JERSEY
 
STATEWIDE - New Jersey Republicans are not crazy. That's the key message, as state GOP members plan to barnstorm the state to connect with local leaders, in an effort to create a wide gap from President Trump. Republicans in the post-Christie era find themselves struggling for relevancy and identity, sandwiched between a Trump presidency that hates Blue states and a Democratic governor and Democratic-led Legislature. "We're going to simply try to do town halls and say, 'Hey, we're the Republican Party, but we're not crazy,'" said Assembly Minority Leader Jon Bramnick. He adds: "Donald Trump is not the leader of the Republican Party in Trenton...We don't answer for what someone might do in Washington." So, don't blame us, OK?

OUR TAKE ON THE NEWS IN NEW JERSEY

STATEWIDE – The state has found a new, innovative way for you to wait on a line, unveiling a pair of mobile MVC offices. It is all about getting those friendly folks at the Motor Vehicle Commission to serve you even better, without the need for you to visit one of those dreadful offices and join various lines of equally-bored wannabe motorists. State officials say these two trucks will be equipped with about 90 percent of the abilities of a full-fledged MVC office, perhaps even with 90 percent of the surliness. These MVC vehicles, which we assume someone had to stand on a line to register, may be appearing in a parking lot near you. Tailgate anyone?

TRENTON – So, who is this new governor that we will be consumed with for four or eight years? Well, his name is Phil Murphy. His middle name is “Dunton” and there is potential this working-class Boston native may be a closet Red Sox fan. (Spit in disgust here.) He may have become a musical actor, the former president of Harvard University’s “Hasty Pudding Theatricals Club.” Now a millionaire, he pays about $200,000 in property taxes each year on his Middletown mansion, so he certainly feels the pain. He is buddies with Jon Bon Jovi and is the part-owner of Sky Blue FC, a professional women's soccer team that plays in Piscataway. And our new governor has plenty of thoughts about raising taxes, to be dissected and debated in many, many articles to come.

OUR TAKE ON THE NEWS IN NEW JERSEY
 
TRENTON - Red-blooded New Jerseyans, in their respectable Republican cloth coats, have been dreading today. An actual breathing liberal, once again, takes over the governor's office and ruins everything. It was eight strong years of solid conservative stewardship, they think, as they trudge up the stairs of the War Memorial in Trenton, scuffing their high-gloss wingtips, and brace themselves for this former Obama-era German ambassador to take the oath as governor at high noon. To them, a basement of liberals is a "whine cellar." Murphy probably calls his Tic Tacs "Entite-mints," they grumble. He'll probably turn Drumthwacket into a community beet farm. But, hey, it is only four years, right? RIGHT?
