I hope everyone enjoyed their Independence Day holiday! While we may not have been able to celebrate as we normally do, it was still a nice reprieve from all that is going on in the world and a chance to reflect on what brings us together as fellow Americans. We are making progress and will make it through!
We would like to remind you that tomorrow, Tuesday July 7th, is the GOP Primary Election!

Please find below a reminder from the NJGOP for the upcoming Primary Election!
The Primary Election is only 5 days away! Please remember to mail your ballot back ASAP To ensure your vote is counted!
There are just five days until voting closes on the 2020 GOP Primary, and its important to make your voice heard. Our party is gearing up for the fall and turning out every single vote for our great candidates.
The Republican Party has started a new website to help protect ballot integrity and identify election fraud called ProtectTheVote.
Please find out more here: www.protectthevote.com.
Here is a bit more about it from RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel:
The RNC and the Trump campaign are aggressively fighting back against the Democrats’ assault on the integrity of our elections. All across the country, Democrats are trying to use coronavirus and the courts to legalize ballot harvesting, implement a nationwide mail-in ballot system, and eliminate nearly every safeguard in our elections.
Voters are on our side. Nearly two-thirds (62%) say there is fraud in U.S. elections, and that fraud would concern them under Democrats’ nationwide mail-in ballot system. Americans overwhelmingly approve of the safeguards Democrats are suing to eliminate like signature matching (84%), voter identification (80%), and a ballot receipt deadline of election day (83%). Voters also oppose (67%) allowing campaign workers to collect mail-in ballots, a practice known as ballot harvesting.
Americans deserve to have confidence in their elections, and we will not stand idly by while Democrats try to sue their way to victory in November.
Please continue to check back often on this site for new updates:
