Lunging Larry Luttrell to seek Democrat nomination for Monmouth County Freeholder

Larry ‘The Lunger’ Luttrell , a Democrat lawyer from Holmdel, is running for Monmouth County Freeholder for the third time, according to  report at InsiderNJ.

This year maybe we’ll call Luttrell The Masochist because he apparently likes to be beaten.   In addition to losing his freeholder race to Burry in 2014, he lost to Serena DiMaso in 2013.  He lost a bid to be elected to the Holmdel Township Committee in 2012 and again last year.

All those beatings earned Luttrell’s wife, Renee, a five year term on the Monmouth County Tax Board. Read the rest of this entry »

Menendez: I plan to run for re-election despite retrial

U.S. Sen. Robert Menendez said Friday he intends to run for re-election this year even though federal prosecutors revealed earlier in the day that they plan to retry the New Jersey Democrat on corruption charges. “Senator Menendez fully expects to be vindicated and has every intention of running for re-election, continuing to fight Donald Trump’s policies… Read the rest of this entry »
