Keep checking back here to get an unofficial view of Paul Aronsohn's fight to replace right wing extremist Ernie Scott Garrett. As Paul has said, it's a fight worth fighting, so we're going to do all we can to get the truth out there about Ernie and his complete disconnect from the people of NJ 5th.
I'm on my way out the door, so here's something I posted yesterday over at Blue Jersey (a must visit spot for anyone who cares about NJ politics):
Madeline Albright comes to the 5th
Well, those of you who were unable to attend last night's reception in honor of Paul Aronsohn really missed something special.
First, special guest the Honorable Madeline Albright was an inspiration. Her candid speech not only reminded us of a better time, not so long ago, when the United States had the moral standing and respect to guide the world toward peace, but also gave us all hope for the future. That hope and optimism was reflected in her heartfelt words and genuine admiration for Paul Aronsohn, both as a person and a candidate.
Second, and more importantly, Paul Aronsohn dropped the gauntlet in a crisp, rousing, passionate speech. Anyone who came to the event as a token gesture in this "solid republican" district went home with an entirely different outlook. (I must admit that, while ever hopeful, I may have been one of them.) Paul made it clear that he is in this race to win it, he'll do what it takes to win against an extreme opponent, and with our help, he will win.
Paul, I've got three words in response: COUNT ME IN
psst- keep August 1st open. A little bird told me that General Wesley K. Clark (U.S.A., Retired), former Supreme Allied Commander of Europe, will be visiting the 5th in support of Paul Aronsohn. Don't make the same mistake twice!
Oh- by the way, speaking of Paul's extreme opponent, does anyone know who that is? Someone told me it was a man by the name of E. Scott Garrett. Has anyone seen that guy around? Based on his voting record, I can't imagine he's the one representing the 5th district. Where's Scott?
