  • Pallone: House health-care hearing a ‘monkey court’

    Washington Post ^ | October 24, 2013
    Rep. Frank Pallone (D-N.J.) derided today's House Energy and Commerce Committee hearing as a “monkey court,” accusing Republicans of exhibiting false concern during testimony and chastising them for raising security concerns that he said were specious.

    The death, at age 89, of Democratic senator Frank Lautenberg has put a wrinkle in the reelection plans of New Jersey governor Chris Christie. The cantankerous Republican enjoys high approval ratings and a chasmic lead over Barbara Buono, a Democratic rival so weak that former governor Brendan Byrne, now the Garden State’s Democratic elder statesman, has hinted she should think about dropping out. But the need to appoint an interim replacement for Lautenberg, and to schedule a special election to fill out his term through 2014, has created a pair of new challenges. First, does Christie hold the special election...
  • The Bombay bombing and the LTTE (Hillary Clinton's ties with Ram Ranjan should be looked at)

    The terrorists who attacked Mumbai had come from the sea. This serves as a reminder to us that the LTTE has in years past tried to penetrate our harbours and Colombo has always been a target. (...) Whenever there was military action against the LTTE by the Sri Lankan forces, LTTE had two cards to play. First relates to violation of human rights by the armed forces, which resonates well with the West. That also helps LTTE immensely as foreign governments tend to make their bilateral assistance to Sri Lanka conditional to good governance by GSOL. The second was the...

    Former New Jersey governor Tom Kean tells National Review Online that he’s keeping an eye on the 3rd congressional district, where Republican Jon Runyan, a former NFL lineman, is locked in a close race with Rep. John Adler, a freshman Democrat. “I think we’re competitive there,” Kean says. “We should pick that up. I’ve spoken with Democrats in the district, people who’ve seen the internal polling, and they’re all pretty downcast.” Another clash to watch, Kean says, is in New Jersey’s 6th, where Tea Party favorite Anna Little is challenging veteran Rep. Frank Pallone. The district, Duncan Currie points out,...

  • Anna Little (Congressional Candidate NJ-6) Talks Practicalities of Taxes

    Examiner (Newark) ^ | 10/3/2010 | Terry Hurlbut
    Republican 6th District challenger Anna C. Little on Friday continued her criticism of the House motion to adjourn before taking up tax-rate extension, and of her opponent, incumbent Democrat Frank Pallone, for voting in its favor. In the process she discussed the practical consequences of what she says will be the largest tax increase in American history. Last Wednesday, the House voted 210-209 to adjourn after taking up a number of specific measures—and the extension of the tax rates set in 2001 was not one of them. Every Democrat from New Jersey (except John Adler, 3rd) voted for that motion....

    The News Record (NJ) ^ | 9/29/2010 | Staff Reportage
    HIGHLANDS — Republican congressional challenger Anna Little – responding to further news reports indicating that Congress will likely recess without first holding a vote on whether or not to extend the current tax rates – urged voters to hold her opponent, 22-year incumbent Democrat Frank Pallone, accountable. Republicans and Democrats in Congress have been debating an extension of Bush-era cuts to the federal income tax rates for months. Democrats want to extend the cuts for taxpayers who make less than $200,000 per year and couples making less than $250,000. Republicans want to extend the cuts to higher income earners as...

    A physical altercation took place between a volunteer for Representative Frank J. Pallone (D-NJ-6) and the campaign treasurer of his challenger, Anna C. Little, in Atlantic Highlands last night. The incident took place in front of witnesses and involved police. According to Russell Cote, Little's field operations director, the altercation took place at approximately 11:30 p.m. on First Avenue in Atlantic Highlands, not far from Little's campaign headquarters. The altercation began when a team of supporters of the Pallone campaign began placing signs on the street, and Anna Little's volunteers, led by Cote, began placing signs of their own, within...
  • Pallone, Little vie for Sixth NJ District

    Although Democratic Rep. Frank Pallone Jr. has held the congressional seat of the 6th district of New Jersey for 22 years, his challenger believes he has lost touch with his constituents. "There's a disconnect between the people of district six and their elected representative," said Anna Little, the Republican candidate facing Pallone. "He does not listen to them. He thinks he knows better than they do, and they are irate." But Pallone feels the opposite and believes he is in touch with his constituents, especially students, considering the University falls within his district's territory. "A main issue I've been working...

    Anna C. Little, the Republican challenger to Democrat Frank Pallone (D-NJ-6), today endorsed the Republican "Pledge to America" manifesto released two days ago. In her endorsement of the 21-page document, Little said, "[T]he 'Pledge to America' is not just a governing agenda that will take power away from Washington and put it back in the hands of the people, where it belongs, it's a modern-day restatement of the principles on which our nation was established." For too long, too many decisions have been made in Washington by political elites who don't seem to care what the American people think...Every decision...

    Anna C. Little, the Republican candidate for Congress in the 6th District, can't afford big media ad buys and doesn't have the franking privilege. So she has elevated the one thing remaining to her--going door-to-door--to a high art. Because one woman alone can scarcely knock on thousands of doors in a modern US congressional district, Little has created an "army" of volunteers. They will go to a town, fan out in pairs or small clusters, make hundreds of telephone calls, and knock on a thousand or more doors. This is how Little won the June 8 primary, despite being out-fundraised...

    Anna C. Little continues to receive outside support in her campaign to unseat Rep. Frank Pallone (D-NJ-6). The latest support comes from a group seeking to use Pallone's own boasts about his co-authorship of the massive healthcare-reform bill against him, in a season in which almost none of his fellow Democrats even want to mention that measure. As reported (last week) by Laura Brod on, a Washington, DC-based group calling itself Freedom's Defense Fund has changed their Web address to, in honor of their most important initiative: criticizing Pallone for his vote on the healthcare-reform bill. More than...

This is one of those years in which political upsets are coming fast and furious from all directions. As I watch the political landscape shift on a daily basis, an interesting race came across my desk.

    Aug. 30, 2010 Well, this is interesting. CNN's Soledad O'Brien, who was last in New Jersey for a documentary focusing on the First Baptist Church of Lincoln Gardens and the Rev. Deforest B. Soaries, is back again. But this time. O'Brien is here to interview 6th District GOP challenger Anna Little and incumbent Rep. Frank Pallone. We thought Pallone was considered a safe Democrat seat. Or could that recent Little poll, which showed Little trailing Pallone by just six points, 40-34, turned some heads? That result (hat tip MoreMonmouthMusings) even got the race noticed by the Daily Kos website: NJ-06:...

    HIGHLANDS – According to a poll released this week, Rep. Frank Pallone leads Republican challenger Anna Little by just six points. The poll, conducted by National Research Inc. for the Little for Congress campaign, shows Pallone at just 40 percent despite nearly 100 percent name recognition among voters in the district. Little had 34 percent in the poll. “The more people learn about Anna Little, the more they like her and can see her as the right alternative to the incumbent,” commented Little’s campaign chair, Leigh-Ann Bellew. “The voters already know about Frank Pallone and becoming increasingly uncomfortable with his...

    Anna C. Little, Republican candidate for the House in New Jersey's 6th District, took sharp issue with statements made by Representative Frank Pallone (D-NJ-6) in his constituent newsletter about the effects of the healthcare-reform bill passed last March. In a press release dated July 15, Little accused Pallone of "lying to the people on their dime" in his latest edition of his newsletter, Constituent Update, which is sent to 6th District residents as "franked" mail, sent with the congressman's signature in lieu of a postage stamp and thereby mailed at taxpayer expense. The contents of Constituent Update do not appear...

    I've never seen so many House seats in play in one party. I'm tracking four of the pundits who rate House races -- Cook, Rothenberg, Sabato and CQ. Between the four an incredible 103 Democratic seats are in play. I think they have missed maybe 3 to 5 seats, but they may list them sooner or later. 24 seats are very slightly to strongly leaning Republican. 16 are pure toss ups to very slightly tilting Democratic. 25 are leaning Democratic That means an incredible 65 seats are very seriously in play. Another 38 seats are rated likely Democratic but at...

    As Anna C. Little and her volunteers canvass Middlesex Borough this morning, Little has taken a calculated risk by issuing a statement decrying the planned Cordoba House mosque and community center, to be (tentatively) located two blocks down from the destroyed World Trade Center. In a press release published at 2:16 p.m. (August 20), Little stated forthrightly that the building of any mosque that close to "Ground Zero" would be inappropriate, regardless of whether such a building would be legal or illegal. She further raised the question of the funding of the mosque, a question that the would-be worship leader...

    Anna C. Little, Republican candidate for Congress in the 6th District, is closing in rapidly on her opponent, Democratic incumbent Frank Pallone, in a race that has now become a tossup, according to an internal poll. In a press release issued August 23, Little cited a poll conducted for the campaign by National Research, Inc., showing Pallone at 40 percent of the vote and Little at 34 percent. That would mean that 26 percent of respondents surveyed were undecided or declined to answer. To be within single digits of the lead with a double-digit undecided population a scant ten weeks...

    he New Jersey Supreme Court intervened today in the political wrangling over whether Democrats can name a replacement for Senator Robert G. Torricelli on the Nov. 5 ballot, saying that it will hear arguments in the case on Wednesday. Lawyers for the New Jersey State Democratic Party had filed a motion in Middlesex County Superior Court this morning in an attempt to remove Mr. Torricelli's name from the ballot and to appoint a replacement. But hours later, the Supreme Court issued an order saying it would hear the case directly instead of waiting for the lower court to act. A...
