Midterm Elections: Vote!

Hey #HipNJ! Are  you registered to vote? Remember that your opinion DOES count and just one vote goes a very long way, so go out and VOTE VOTE VOTE!

People often dismiss the midterm elections, believing that they aren’t as important as the presidency, but I’m here to tell you that those people are WRONG. This election determines who will be taking the seats in the U.S. Senate and U.S. House of Representatives. In the State, 1 of the Senate seats are up for grabs, along with all 12 of the House seats. 

The U.S. Senate election has been a close one with Democrat Robert Menendez of Paramus and Republican Bob Hugin of Summit. This race is important because the Senate chamber helps write federal laws and confirms all judges and other presidential nominees. 

 The state has two open House seats, in South Jersey’s 2nd District, where Republican Rep. Frank LoBiondo is retiring, and in North Jersey’s 11th District, where Republican Rep. Rodney Frelinghuysen is retiring.

In the 11th District, we have Democrat Mikie Sherrill vs. Republican Jay Webber, with polls showing Sherrill having a slight advantage currently. In the 2nd District, there’s Republican Seth Grossman vs. Democrat Jeff Van Drew, with polls showing Van Drew leading by double digits. 

Remember, if you want to make a difference, go out and vote. It counts. It matters. It’s your right. 

Governor Jim McGreevey

Election Day Special with Governor Jim McGreevey

“Just give a damn and get involved!”

As thousands of New Jerseyians race to the polls to pick our next governor today, those words by former Governor Jim McGreevey pack a meaningful punch.  

On Election Day, #HipNJ‘s Armand V. Cucciniello III sat with the trailblazing politician at Porto Leggero in Jersey City. Over meatballs and ravioli (the Governor’s favorite!) they talked about the state’s opioid crisis, his work with the New Jersey Reentry Corporation and that one day in 2004 that changed the political landscape forever.

Watch now, and make sure to #CastYourVote
