Two weeks ago MMM gave the Trenton GOP a head slap over their idiotic strategy of trying to pick up seats in the Legislature by running against Corzine Democrats.
Evidently, someone heard us.
The Assembly Republic Victory Fund is paying PolitickerNJ to run their video, The New Republicans-Coming to a Voting Booth Near You
Call that a good first step. But it’s far from a winning strategy.
Lowering taxes in not a New Republican message. If lowering taxes would win over the voters in districts the Assembly Republican leadership is targeting, they would have won those districts in 2009 or 2011.
Since MMM didn’t get any of those advertising dollars wasted at PolitickerNJ, or even an angry phone call after the first head slap, we’re torn over giving too much more away. We want the Republicans to take control of the Legislature, if for no other reason than to see if Governor Christie really does turn Trenton upside down if given a real opportunity to do so. But two things are holding us back; 1) Democrats are reading MMM, just as they are reading PoltickerNJ, and 2) we need to eat as much as the folks at PolitickerNJ and your idiotic consultants do.
Nevertheless, here’s some more free advice for my friends in Trenton.
For New Republican ideas, talk to Caroline Casagrande about her pro-women, pro-jobs, pro-business ideas.
Maria Rodriguez-Gregg is much more than a pretty Latina Honey Bee. She has a lot more in common with the voters that need to be won over than most Republicans do. Listen to Maria.
John Campbell, Jr seems like a sharp young man. Have him introduce you to some Black people who don’t own suits.
Stop wasting your money advertising on venues that the voters and donors you’re targeting don’t view.
Most importantly get out of Trenton and Westfield and visit the districts you think you can win. Listen.
