WINDMILLS OF THE GROUND – “Turbulence given that state service denies solar tactics,” by NJ Spotlight News’ Tom Johnson: “It wasn’t a good day Wednesday for advancing clean-energy goals at the New Jersey Board of https://kissbrides.com/hr/madarske-nevjeste/ Public Utilities.

SWITCHORELLO – “Letter.J. mayor ditches intend to problem effective Senator, leaps into competition for Republican’s Domestic seat,” by NJ Advance Media’s Brent Johnson: “A few months ago, Roselle Park Mayor Joe Signorello III declared he would challenge U.S. Sen. Robert Menendez in next year’s Democratic primary. But Signorello announced Thursday he is now dropping that plan and switching races, entering one of the most closely watched U.S. House contests in the country instead – for freshman Republican Rep. Tom Kean Jr.’s seat … The 35-year-old small-town mayor will be the second candidate to join the pri Democratic nomination to challenge Kean for the seat he flipped last year in New Jersey’s battleground 7th district. The first was Sue Altman, a progressive activist who announced her candidacy in May with the support of top Democratic figures in the state … At least one other Democrat has considered entering the race: former state Sen. Ray Lesniak of Union County, who has said he will make a decision after this November’s elections. Signorello’s announcement Thursday included a quote from Lesniak saying ‘I welcome Joe Signorello’s entry’ into the primary. Lesniak added that some of Altman’s stances would ‘hand over the election to Kean and hurt Democrats up and down the district.’”
ENEMY AT THE GAETZ – “Van Drew ballots having amendment cutting off support in order to Ukraine,” by New Jersey Globe’s Joey Fox: “An amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) cutting off all military assistance to Ukraine failed overwhelmingly today, but it picked up one vote from a New Jersey congressman: Rep. Jeff Van Drew (R-Dennis). The amendment, which says in one simple sentence that ‘no Federal funds may be made available to provide security assistance to Ukraine,’ was authored by Rep. Matt Gaetz, a famously right-wing Republican from Florida … The amendment failed on a vote of 70-358, and a related amendment striking Ukraine funding from the NDAA specifically failed on a similar vote of 89-341. In both cases, all of the no votes came from Republicans, and most of them from the rightmost side of the party like the House Freedom Caucus.”
