It’s become a winter tradition that Monmouth County Republicans can mark their calendars by. Shaun Golden’s annual Starry Night Celebration is on the last Friday of January followed by the Monmouth GOP’s annual Lincoln Day Dinner two weeks later.
The atmosphere was electric on Friday night in Freehold where over 500 enthusiastic Republicans gathered at Southgate Manor for the annual celebration of America’s first Republican president and the annual kickoff of signature gathering for candidates’ petitions.
New Jersey’s sole remaining Republican in Congress, Rep Chris Smith, received a spontaneous standing ovation when Golden noted his arrival from a Friday voting session in Washington. Smith in turn acknowledged the strong Monmouth Republican team that held back the blue wave that swept the rest of New Jersey in last fall’s election and specifically congratulated Golden, not for politics, but for outstanding government. The Sheriff was honored in Washington last year, Smith noted, for leading the best 911 call center in the country.Art Gallagher | Filed under: Monmouth County News, Monmouth County Republican Committee, Monmouth GOP, New Jersey | Tags: Assemblywoman Serena DiMaso, Barbara McMorrow, Bill Palatucci, Christine Giordano Hanlon, Congressman Chris Smith, Freeholder Gerry Scharfenberger, Freeholder Sue Kiley, Kevin Orender, Monmouth County News, Shaun Golden | Comments Off on Republican Enthusiasm Abounds At Monmouth County Lincoln Day Dinner

New Jersey’s new Vote by Mail law, signed by Gov. Murphy in August, has the potential to leave voters hanging on Election Night, not just in New Jersey, but across the country. Candidates and voters should be aware that the results on Election Night may be far from final.
With recent polls suggesting that the New Jersey Senate race is tighter than many anticipated, and with several New Jersey congressional races polling within the margin of error, the new law could cause the entire nation to be left wondering which party will control of the U.S. House or Senate come January.admin | Filed under: Christine Hanlon, Monmouth County News, New Jersey, Opinion | Tags: 2018 elections, Christine Giordano Hanlon, Governor Phil Murphy, Monmouth County Clerk Christine Giordano Hanlon, Opinion, Vote by mail | 1 Comment »
