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.

"Since the print publication of this list, Christie, in his capacity as chairman of the Republican Governors Association, helped decisively turn the midterm elections in the Republicans' favor, which makes him a bit more influential than we initially gave him credit for, post-Bridgegate. So when your state governments do absolutely nothing for you for the next four years, be sure to thank him!"
