When it comes to picking through the detritus and finding the gems nobody does it better than David Wildstein. Yep, before he was Wally Edge he was a political consultant, campaign manager, opposition researcher, and successful candidate for public office. You can’t take that away from him. He’s been in battles up close and personal. He’s had to punch and claw. And that’s what makes him different from a guy like Max Pizarro. David Wildstein remembers what it was like to be in the muck of the trenches. Max Pizarro has only known clean sheets and maid service.
Given the excruciatingly poor results Republicans have had raising the necessary levels of funding for legislative races in New Jersey, a recent post by Wildstein on his latest venture – NewJerseyGlobe.com – noted that the very conservative United States Senator Ted Cruz, Republican of Texas, has raised more money in New Jersey than his very woke, very hip, wildly popular with the Left opponent – Congressman Beto O’Rourke. Cruz has raised $139,783 in New Jersey to fund his re-election effort in Texas. Media darling Beto managed just $52,349.
But here’s the clincher. Wildstein notes that in his failed 2016 run for President, the plain-as-day, no-doubt-about-it, right-winger raised $903,417 in New Jersey.
How is that possible? We are endlessly told that there aren’t any conservatives in New Jersey – let alone nearly a million bucks worth (and that’s not counting what the other wingers raised in New Jersey, like Rand Paul, and Donald Trump himself!). A million bucks would be a BIG part of the budget of a committee like ARV, wouldn’t it be?
Reminder to those concerned: In preparation for next year, get a message that doesn’t ignore the acres of diamonds out there.
