The politics of oil …. in a bit, but first I ask and I answer this vital question: “How are you feeling today (2nd district) candidate?” Answer; less than hopeful. Blue Jersey, I might be the man down here…… I might be THE Democrat. Forget your squeamishness, send help.
I’ve noticed there are Congressional candidates (yes, some, like me- Jason Castle comes to mind- who’ve never held elected office) with the good fortune to have pals on this site writing upbeat things about their campaigns. And then there’s Stein, fending for himself. Maybe me, chronicling my efforts, is enough for now….

Mr. Perskie, I cut 30%. It’s 346 words. It would be generalities if I cut it anymore. I’ve got more at stake then the typical letter writer, I’ve put more on the line. I’ve come right to the edge of wrecking our business, finances, domestic tranquility, you name it……..you have no idea. Please, let me know.
