    According to the 1975 book Man Eating Sharks! by Felix Dennis, on a beautiful, clear summer day in 1955, one beach along the shores of Lake Michigan was packed with people looking to cool off and enjoy the sunny day, and one of these was George Lawson, a boy from Chicago. Lawson was out with many others splashing about and swimming off a boat near the beach when witnesses allegedly saw him pulled underwater, seemingly by something yanking him under and accompanied by the boy's panicked screams. Shockingly, a dorsal fin was reported by several others on the boat as...

    MOUNT LAUREL, N.J. – A New Jersey Republican congressional candidate criticized his Democratic opponent Friday amid mounting evidence that Democratic officials planted a tea-party candidate in the race to siphon off conservative votes. "My opponent, John Adler, represents everything that is wrong with politics in our country today," Republican Jon Runyan said. "I would ask for an apology. But frankly, an apology from someone like Congressman Adler would be so meaningless that it's not worth seeking." He spoke at a news conference Friday as Adler, a first-term Democratic lawmaker, and his campaign remained mum about a report in the Courier-Post...

    How desperate have Democrats become to keep their grip on power? Even some of their colleagues have become disgusted enough with their machinations to start speaking out in New Jersey’s 3rd CD, where John Adler faces a strong challenge from Republican Jon Runyan. According to sources within the party, the Courier Post reports that Adler backed a phony “Tea Party” independent candidate to split the conservative vote: Congressman John Adler’s campaign and the Camden County Democratic Committee recruited “”NJ Tea Party” candidate Peter DeStefano to confuse conservative voters and hurt Adler’s Republican challenger this fall, Democratic operatives say.

    What is it with my law school classmates? First it was Eliott Spitzer. Now it's Congressman John Adler. No, not in that way. Adler, a Democrat from southern New Jersey, is a freshman congressman, swept into office on Obama's coattails in a conservative district. Adler came out early against Obamacare, recognizing his precarious position, and has been among the most conservative Democrats in the House. Adler was popular in his district, but he really pulled a boneheaded move which may cost him the election now that it has become public. Adler's campaign staff, apparently with Adler's knowledge, set up a...

    Every cycle there are races that are so heavily polled that you can't help but think about them (say, VA-05 this cycle), and there are races that manage to work their way into the news for other reasons (like FL-08). But there are also relatively quiet races that are easy to overlook until something comes along to shake things up. One of those races this year is in New Jersey's 3rd Congressional District. Democrat John Adler picked the district up from retiring Republican Jim Saxton in a quiet election in 2008, where the only surprise was that Adler only won...

    John Runyan, a former lineman with the NFL's Philadelphia Eagles, announced Thursday that he is considering running for Congress in New Jersey. Runyan issued a press release saying he is looking at taking on freshman Democrat John Adler in the 3rd District, which stretches from the Philadelphia suburb of Cherry Hill, N.J. all the way to the Atlantic coast. Adler won a close race in 2008 for the open seat left by retiring Republican H. James Saxton, and is already a member of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee's "Frontline" program for vulnerable incumbents. Runyan, 35, played 13 seasons of professional...
  • A NJ Democrat Says No to Health Bill

    The decisions of the final holdouts on the House health bill are beginning to come in. Rep. John Adler, a New Jersey Democrat, said today he’s voting no. He criticized the bill’s $1 trillion-plus price tag over 10 years, and said it doesn’t do enough to control health costs. Adler’s state, of course, was the scene of a big Republican win this week when Chris Christie defeated incumbent Democrat Jon Corzine in the New Jersey gubernatorial race. Seeking his first term in Congress last year, Adler squeaked to victory with 52% of the vote, and he’s one of the many...

    Senate Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus (D-Mont.) says Tuesday’s Republican victories in Virginia and New Jersey should be a “wake-up call” for Democrats in Congress. Here are 10 likely to be hearing alarm bells. Sen. Harry Reid (D-Nev.) No one noticed the election results more than Reid’s advisers, who know he faces a situation similar to that which befell New Jersey Gov. Jon Corzine. Like Corzine, Reid is an unpopular incumbent running in a state whose economy is in the tank. And like Corzine, he’ll have to use his massive war chest to create a negative impression of his opponent...

    On Saturday August 8, 2009 my wife, children, and I attended a town hall meeting held by US Congressman John Adler, DEMOCRAT, Representative for New Jersey 3rd District. We arrived shortly after the meeting began, signed in, and found seats in the back of the assembly room, which was roughly the size of a gym. Few seats remained empty and people lined the perimeter walls. Essentially it was standing room only. Adler was speaking when we walked in and was touting what he saw as problems with the current health system. I heard him offer slight praise for health systems...

    A member at sent his congressman a teabag in the mail to protest their spending, and now his congressman's office is threatening him. The member says, "I told her no malice intended and asked if it was illegal to mail a teabag. I told her it was a in protest in response to the votes of the Congressman. I also told her I thought maybe they would enjoy a good cup of tea this afternoon. She was not amused but acted dumb as to why I sent it. She also said a RECORD of this would be made." Here...
