Skip to comments.A Tea Party Victory in New Jersey? Itís election day and the polls are closer than you think.

When a liberal reporter asked Steve Lonegan if Sarah Palin was too far-right for New Jersey, Lonegan did what Republican candidates for Senate have not done in recent memory: He went on offense.
I dont think its far right to support small business owners and to support taxpayers who are struggling, he shot back. Sarah Palin is a wonderful mother. She was also a wonderful governor and an excellent role model for women.
Thats not how Republicans coming out of the Northeast typically respond when they encounter a hostile reporter. And if you ask Amy Kremer, chair of the Tea Party Express, she will tell you that Lonegans blunt, rhetorical style is also out of place in Washington, D.C., where the party establishment appears set to cave in the fight over funding for Obamacare.
We thought we could push the party to the right, she said, addressing thousands of Lonegan supporters gathered at the New Egypt Speedway in Ocean County, New Jersey on Saturday...
The operative word almost is why Diane Bagley Robb, a Hamilton resident, wants to know why Karl Rove and his organization American Crossroads have gone missing in New Jersey.
The party establishment thinks you have to be RINO, and you have to be moderate to win, she said. But I know a lot of moderate Republicans who have lost in this state and in other parts of the country. But now we have a genuine conservative so where is the rest of the party?
Most importantly, neither side seems to be saying that the race isnt close.

Not gonna happen. As soon as the polls are closed, the dead start voting and the Democrats start “finding” votes.
I didn't have to compromise or hold my nose.
Booker by 14+
Rove is a RINO quisling
I promise you. In many districts the voting machines came preloaded with votes for booker.
They will also wait to tally their votes till the likely Lonegan districts report. Then they’ll just manufacture the needed votes.
Well, let me disabuse you of this notion of Booker losing.
The election is not even close. Booker +8.
Bring out your dead !
Thankful to see. I just hope other “R” voters turn out in spite of today’s disgust with the overall party. Good luck New Jersey.
Exactly. The “voting” will continue on and on until a sufficient number is found to put the Dem over the top.
A box of previously unknown “absentee” ballots will be uncover in Newark later tonight/
Offer to take family and friends to vote!
Lonegan - a zero-compromise, straight-up conservative - will likely do much better against a better Democrat candidate than the RINO did.
The found ballots won’t be necessary. This is Jersey. It is solid blue. There are some red counties and districts, but the people there are outnumbered by the parasite class.
the polls are closer than you think....
How close is that supposed to be? Off year and a special election so not a lot of push but is it really close?
It's hard to imagine that Lonegan could pull it off - but turnout is low and it is a weird day for an election.
Al Franken is on his way with a large box in his trunk.
