Conventional wisdom – people telling Jeff Gardner he had zero shot to unseat Senator John Girgenti as Hawthorne Democratic Municipal Chair:
“You can’t possibly win against somebody who’s been there for 30 years!”
Later, speaking of the next race he’s likely to run against Senator Girgenti, for Girgenti’s 35th District seat in the Senate:
If he tells his story and I tell my story, then I win. If he tells his story and nobody hears mine, he wins.
– Jeff, thanking guests today
All I can say is Jay Lassiter gives one hell of a Pink Sangria party. Jay’s beautiful house was wall-to-wall people today, all of us there to join the Senate campaign of Jeff Gardner. Blue Jersey people. DFA people. Garden State Equality people. People from Jeff’s district, and from all over the place, confirming once again that the progressive community is itching & ready as hell to elect good people to represent us.
I had a lot of fun meeting people who’ve been posting at Blue Jersey for years, but I’ve never met in the flesh. Y’all know who you are – it was a total pleasure seeing you today. Jump with me for the pictures.
