About Us

PolitickerNJ delivers political news that matters to New Jersey—from the halls of power in Trenton to Washington D.C.—to the streets of Newark, Jersey City and Monmouth and Gloucester counties. We specialize in updating readers with breaking news and insight and analysis on elections and government in all corners of the great Garden State. If it’s political, we write about it—and in New Jersey—that means just about everything is game.

"He’s obviously working very, very hard at it. I mean he’s traveling all over the country as chairman of the [Republican Governors Association] and I think at this point he has as good a chance or better than anybody else. His name is household word all across the country, and I think he would make a great president."
—former U.S. Rep. Jim Saxton (R-3), on Gov. Chris Christie
