Guadagno Highlights Dems’ Attacks On Murphy

Just hours before her final televised debate against Assemblyman Jack Ciattarelli, Lt. Governor Kim Guadagno released a web ad that looks past the gubernatorial primaries and June 6 and slams her likely opponent for Governor in the general election, former Goldman Sachs banker Phil Murphy.

In the 51 second spot, Murphy’s competitors for the Democrat nomination for Governor, Jim Johnson, John Wisniewski and Ray Lesniak, slam for former diplomat for his outrageous campaign spending, his role in the mortgage crisis which tanked the American economy and his relationships with corporate and political “insiders.”

Ciattarelli aging rapidly?

Running against Lt. Gov Kim Guadagno must be a daunting task.

Assemblyman Jack Ciattarelli, one of Guadagno’s four opponents in the GOP primary for Governor, looks as though he’s aged more in a week than Barack Obama aged over 8 years in the White House, if his campaign mail is to be believed.

If you’re a Republican primary voter, you likely received two pieces of campaign mail from Ciattarelli in the last week.   The photo on the left is from the first piece.  The photo on the right is the second piece.  If Jack loses to Kim on June 6, he could have a future as Just for Men model.

The nominating petitions filed by the Monmouth County Freeholder candidates aligned with Jack Ciattarelli for Governor appear to have fraudulent signatures and to have been falsely certified, according to a challenge filed by Monmouth County Republican Chairman Shaun Golden and an ongoing investigation by MMM.

In a letter to Monmouth County Clerk Christine Giordano Hanlon obtained by MMM, Golden said that a review of the petitions filed by Bernard Dowd and Susan Ellen Metz revealed “a number of irregularities.” Golden wrote that several signatures appear to be in the same handwriting for multiple people,  several signers are not registered to vote and/or are registered Democrats.  Democrat voters are not eligible to vote in Republican primaries nor endorse candidates for those primaries.

Lt. Gov Kim Guadagno, center, with former Monmouth County Clerk M. Claire French, right and Sui Allex, a Marlboro GOP Council candidate, at the launch of the We Care About NJ PAC on Tuesday evening.

Lt. Governor Kim Guadagno has been cleared by U.S. Attorney Paul Fishman in the allegations against her made by Hoboken Mayor Dawn Zimmer, according to a report at NJ.com.

After months of praising the Christie Administration after Superstorm Sandy, Zimmer used the media frenzy when the Bridgegate story broke in January of 2014 to become famous by alleging that Guadagno shook her down seven months earlier.

The mayor said that Guadagno told her, on behalf of Governor Christie, that Hoboken’s Sandy recovery aide was tied to Zimmer pushing through a development application for the Rockefeller Group.  The shakedown allegedly happened at a supermarket ribbon cutting ceremony in May of 2013.  Zimmer suddenly remembered the shakedown in January of 2014 when the George Washington Bridge lane closure scandal was dominating the news.

Rally For Christie, 13th District and Monmouth County Republicans on Saturday

Chris Christie at Bachstadt's Tavern, November 1, 2009

Chris Christie at Bachstadt’s Tavern, November 1, 2009

Governor Chris Christie will be returning to Bachstadt’s Tavern in North Middletown on Saturday afternoon, November 2, as his bi-partisan supporters rally to get out the vote for a historic victory.

Bachstadt’s, the traditional venue of Senator Joe Kyrillos’s and his 13th District running mates pre-election rallies, was adopted by Christie for good luck in his 2009 race against Jon Corzine.  It was at the Bachstadt’s rally in 2009 that Kyrillos announced that the troubled Corzine campaign was making robo calls for Independent gubernatorial candidate Chris Daggett, in an unsuccessful effort to suppress Christie’s voter turnout.  MMM confirmed that the calls were paid for by Democrats and was the first to break that story which became national news.

In addition to Christie, 13th District Legislators Kyrillos and Assembly Members Amy Handlin and Declan O’Scanlon, and Monmouth County candidates, Sheriff Shaun Golden and Freeholders Tom Arnone and Serena DiMaso will be present to thank and rally their supporters.

The event is from 1PM-4PM and includes all you can eat and drink for FREE!  Voluntary donations to any the 13th District or Monmouth County candidates will be accepted.

Bachstadt’s is located at 8 Bray Ave, North Middletown, NJ.

In addition to Bachstadt’s on Saturday, Christie will visit Monmouth County Republican Headquarters, 2 Monmouth Ave, Freehold, on Monday morning November 4 at 11:45 am.

Lt. Governor Kim Guadagno will be meeting voters and volunteers on Friday morning, 10:45 at the Middletown Victory Center, 1715 Rt 35 North, Middletown and at the Blue Swan Diner, 2116 Route 35 South, Oakhurst at 11:45 am..  On Tuesday, Guadagno will stop on Monmouth Republican Headquarters at 2:30 PM.
