NJGOP Will Fight To Stop Democrats From Rigging Election System


Trenton, NJ – NJ Globe has reported that Assembly Speaker Craig Coughlin is potentially reintroducing, in lame duck, the Democrat proposal to game New Jersey’s election system by rigging the redistricting process.

New Jersey Republican State Committee Chairman Doug Steinhardt issued the following statement:

“Bringing their intraparty street fight for political power full circle, Democratic politicians in Trenton are spitting in the faces of New Jersey’s 9 million residents by reintroducing and reconsidering the same rancid, redistricting amendment they pursued last year to rig the legislative reapportionment process and secure for themselves a permanent majority in the legislature. Their desperate power grab is unsurprising, since they had their worst statewide election showing in 28 years. By rewriting the rules and rigging the election system, greedy politicians create legislative districts that take you and your votes for granted.”

Their 2018 proposal to rig our state’s election system faced broad, unified and diverse opposition from over 50 active organizations.

Steinhardt continued, “If you’re reading this, I ask you to join the NJGOP and fight back. Contact your state legislators and tell them that to earn your support, they must support fair elections.”
