As we approach the Republican primary for governor, I am compelled to tell you two things. First, that I loved the Presidency of Donald J. Trump, voted for him both times, and that I will support him if he decides to run in 2024 to address the (already) many failures that Biden has imposed on the country. Second, none of the above matters in the coming race to save New Jersey from Democrat Governor Feckless Phil Murphy.

Whomever wins the GOP Gubernatorial nominations, the party, and most importantly the grassroots, will need to rally behind that person to defeat Phil Murphy. This candidate will have to both energize the base (including Trump lovers such as myself) and reach Independents and moderate Democrats (such as many of my family and friends) to take the governors mansion and start our state down the right path. While a primary campaign is a great way to show the policy and stylistic differences between candidates for our party’s nomination, it need stop at personal attacks and the unloading of decades of vendetta’s if the GOP is going to grow after the primary and expand its voter base to win the general election. Failing to do so fundamentally hurts Republican odds of winning against Governor Feckless Phil Murphy.
