Skip to comments.LIVE THREAD ~ NEW JERSEY SPECIAL ELECTION FOR US SENATE
Posted on 10/16/2013 4:30:35 AM PDT by bryan999
Good morning Free Republic and good morning to the GREAT STATE of NEW JERSEY!
Get up and go to you polling place!! VOTE FOR STEVE LONEGAN TODAY!!
And with that -- I am off to do my civic duty and to make America proud!!
(hope this isn't a repeat thread!)
Go Steve GO!
Will be casting my vote this afternoon...
New Jersey is making its choice and it is not difficult to predict. That choice is not determined by equity or even by enlightened self-interest, rather it is determined by tribe.
Godspeed New Jersey!
One of the most comical scenes in recent political memory was the Democratic primary race for Newark mayor a few years ago, when Cory Booker eventually defeated incumbent Sharpe James. One of the key themes of James' campaign was that Booker -- a lawyer and Stanford graduate who grew up in a wealthy Bergen County suburb and whose parents were two IBM executives at the firm's headquarters in Westchester County -- wasn't "black enough" to be the mayor of Newark. ROFL.
Lonegan would be a long shot if this were the general election but he’s got a slim chance with this special election. Here’s hoping for a huge conservative turnout in Old Jersey-—make it New again.
Not bloody likely.
There was NOBODY voting this AM and I live in freakin big lib city Hoboken! Maybe that’s a good sign? I was in and out in literally three minutes.
GO NEW JERSEY!!
The libs aren’t out of bed yet.
It`s early...........you could vote a couple more times today.
Ha, yeah probably. Hopefully they stay there.
Moving this to Breaking...
True. It's not as if they have to get up to go to work, or anything like that.
While Lonegan realistically has about a 1% chance of winning this contest, it’s important to go through the motions of voting anyway.
Let’s go, Conservatives... we always demand conservative candidates and make the claim they’d win if they’d get nominated... well, in NJ today and in VA next month, here are the opportunities to put it all to the test. You can’t get more conservative than Lonegan and Cuccinelli. There is NO excuse for sitting at home this time. Turn out and vote... ALL HANDS are needed!
This will be a good test to see what our numbers really are.
Hey! Why don't you go this morning and vote and then again this afternoon?
Progressive mantra: Vote early and vote often!
Work first, vote second.....
I’m on the way to work long before the polls open...
Hard to tell. Conservatives should be pouring into the voting precincts today.
The “media” will try to suppress conservative voting by running bogus “exit polls” showing Booker leading by 20+. Don’t buy into it... vote anyway, just because it’s the right thing to do.
Well, it’s quite a stark difference from the presidential vote last year. I went to exact same place at the exact same time and it was packed with people.. And since this is Hoboken, it’s safe to assume that they were mostly liberals.
I think the enthusiasm from the liberal side for this election is not as great as it is on the conservative side. The MSM obviously wants us to believe otherwise...
It’ll be interesting to say the least.
Hello....Limbaugh, Hannity, Drudge, Levin, Palin, Cruz, Lee, Christie, FNC, Paul, etc,......help turn out the Steve Lonegan vote today in New Jersey!!!
New Jersey voters...you have the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to change the course of history in these United States of America today by turning out in massive numbers to vote for and support Steve Lonegan for the US Senate!!! Do it and save America from the destruction brought forth by POTUS Barack Hussein Obama and his “Hate America” ilk of Obamabot Democrats!!!
This special election offers an opportunity for Steve Lonegan to pull off the election upset of the century. His fate, the fate of the great state of New Jersey, the fate of our magnificent nation, the fate and destiny of your beloved children, your adored grandchildren and all fine American children yet to come is in your capable hands!!!
Go to the Polls and vote for: STEVE LONEGAN for US Senator, New Jersey!!!
Note: Go on NJ.com and vote in the online poll for the Senate Race. It is in the article relative Steve Lonegan!!! Do it!!!
I crawled over broken glass this morning to case my vote against Corey Booker. I was the only one at the firehouse.
Get out and vote!
I went to nj.com and voted in their online poll. The results as of right now:
Democrat Cory Booker 47.16% (864 votes)
Republican Steve Lonegan 48.69% (892 votes)
An independent candidate 4.15% (76 votes)
I hope so too... We're going to be going through the same stuff in a couple weeks here in Virginia. If polls are to be believed, Cuccinelli is in for a country whipping, but I'm holding out hope, however flickering, that conservatives will defy the odds and turn out in great numbers and send Fast Terry the Bagman packing. Here in VA, conservatives have strong representation on the entire ticket (Governor, Lt. Governor and Attorney General). If we can't tip the balance for THESE guys against even an a-hole like McAuliffe and the two on his ticket, then it's clear we don't have the numbers anymore and that democrats will rule here for the foreseeable future.
Good news, but they might all be on the same bus
Am I correct in understanding that they’ll run again next year? I think that Booker will win this time, thought it will be close...but if Obamacare is a real disaster, Lonegan could win in 2014.
Have the entitled class cast early votes for this election?
C’mon New Jersey, shock the world!!!
If you don't mind sharing, I wonder if you rent or own, and how far you commute. You must have a really great job, to stay there.
The great state of NJ...yeah, 50 years ago it was!
Add to that 67 of the 100 seats in the House of Delegates are occupied by the GOP; in the Bedford district 26-term Lacey Putney (an independent who caucused with the GOP for the past 30-40 years) has retired, and the district is 2/1 conservative; and also in the 4th district (Abingdon & Lebanon), a long time ‘Rat delegate has retired, and, get this, the GOP candidate, a local attorney, is running unopposed. So, the GOP will be out to defend its supermajority in the House.
Currently I rent, but my fiancee & I are about to move to a house in Nutley. I’ve been here since 2002 (originally from MA).
I’m an independent IT consultant. I make decent money, but there’s always room for improvement!
Good luck and wish NJ the best in defeating the Dem. Lastest polls still show a double digit
lead for the dem. Maybe a special election like this will prove otherwise.
I'm just an armchair anthropologist, but totally agree. If only more people saw it that way.
GO NEW JERSEY!!! WE’LL BE ROOTING FOR YOU - THAT SANITY PREVAILS!!
B999, Thank you for this thread! Had you not done it, some other Fr-er’ would have, thank you for beating them to the punch!
PRAYING in LOS ANGELES for NEW JERSEY...
OH GOD hear our heart’s cry this day!!!In JESUS’ NAME.....
Godspeed Steve Lonegan. Turnout could win this.
This household will be voting for Lonegan. Too bad that our faux “conservative” governor wouldn’t get off his fat a$$ to actively campaign for Lonegan.
Question for you NJ Freepers, to what extent did Christie support Lonegan during the campaign, was he actively involved in terms of campaign appearances, speeches, endorsements, etc?
It must be very decent money indeed, if you can hope to cope with property taxes in Nutley. Owwwwww!
And without a landlord, you have to do your own plumbing repairs.
Get married, be fruitful, and best of luck to you. Sounds like you’re moving in the right direction, especially if you started out in MA :)
Me, I’d hop on 80 and not stop ‘til I reached Hazleton PA!
I think Christie wants Booker to win.
Thank you!!! Folks Freep this online poll big time!!! I know online polls are fuzzy at best....but a big bang in favor of Steve Lonegan can be helpful a bit, at least!!! Do it!!!!
NEW JERSEY....you can stun the entire world tonight by having Steve Lonegan defeat Flim/Flam, Con Man, low life Obamabot....Cory “the criminal, thug” Booker!!! Do it!!!
Go New Jersey, the “crossroad” state of the American Revolution!!! Remember...Monmouth....remember Trenton!!! When the despair of defeat was right at hand...General George Washington, crossed over the Delaware river, landing on the New Jersey shoreline and marched his troops through freezing weather and snow fall, some militia...with no shoes on....to surprise attack the British and Hessians bedded down in Trenton...and history records the massive victory of the American regulars & militia that changed the course of the Revolutionary war!!!
New Jersey....do it again this evening...elect Steve Lonegan as your next US Senator and change the course of American history forever. Bring Freedom, Liberty and Opportunity back to America today!!! Vote for STEVE LONEGAN!!
Usually there is a huge outpouring of Democratic voters before the pols close. (It takes time to round up the needed voters to swing the election.)
Booker wins by 10 points minimum.
Fewer people vote in special elections and off-years. This gives the cheaters more ballots to fiddle with.
Sad reality. Especially in NJ.
Yeah, the taxes are atrocious, but we love the house and we have friends there already.
And thank you, I’m looking forward to my own castle! This was years in the making...
Noticing that all the MSM articles have photos of Booker and Christie - but NONE OF LONEGAN!!!!!!!!!
