    An internal poll from vulnerable Democrat Rep. Tom Malinowski, taken less than two months before Election Day, shows that he is tied with Republican challenger Tom Kean in New Jersey’s Seventh Congressional District. Malinowski’s internal poll showed the two tied at 48 percent, and four percent of likely voters are undecided.

    Thomas Kean Jr., the New Jersey State Senate Republican minority leader, will reportedly announce his candidacy for New Jersey’s seventh congressional district. Kean will announce his campaign to unseat Rep. Tom Malinowski (D-NJ) on July 14. He ran during the 2020 congressional elections and came close to beating the New Jersey Democrat.

    When it comes to living former New Jersey governors, a new poll shows Tom Kean remains residents’ favorite, while Chris Christie is still their least favorite — though his numbers have improved. A majority of Jerseyans don’t support another Christie making another run at the White House, either. The Monmouth University Poll, released Tuesday morning, asked Garden State adults what they think about the state’s nine living ex-governors.

    The race for Congress in New Jersey’s 7th district narrowed again on Friday afternoon and now just 4,604 votes separate Democratic Rep. Tom Malinowski (D-Ringoes) from his Republican challenger, Senate Minority Leader Tom Kean, Jr. (R-Westfield).

Morris County added 4,493 votes to the 7th district tally, with Kean winning 56% of the newly-counted votes. Malinowski started the day with a 5,496-vote lead over Kean. The freshman congressman was in front of Kean by 28,412 votes on election night. Around 32,360 more ballots...

    CLARK – Tom Kean Jr. wants to make sure there’s no doubt about his philosophy. “I’m a Tom Kean Republican,” he said Tuesday night to an overflow crowd jammed into the local American Legion hall. Kean Jr., was announcing his candidacy for the 7th District congressional seat now held by Democrat Tom Malinowski. The reference was to his father, Tom Kean Sr., who served two terms as governor in the 1980’s. The term, “Tom Kean Republican,” is not merely the type of throwaway line one often hears at political gatherings. Over the years in New Jersey politics, it has come...

    WASHINGTON — State Senate Minority Leader Tom Kean Jr. is expected to run for the U.S. House next year, giving national Republicans a major recruiting success following a midterm where Democrats captured four of the five GOP-held House seats. Kean, R-Union, already has set up a fundraising committee and met with officials of the House Republicans’ political arm advance of his announcement scheduled for Tuesday in Clark. A campaign consultant, Harrison Neely, declined to comment.

    Forty-four years ago, Brendan Byrne was elected New Jersey governor, amassing a record plurality of 721,378 votes and, in the process, driving the Republican membership in the General Assembly to a historic low - 14 seats. The partisan divide - 66 Democrats and 14 Republicans - meant the Democratic Party held 83 percent of the seats in the Assembly. For every one Republican, there were five Democrats. It was the kind of electoral beatdown that is almost impossible to absorb and still survive. Senate Republicans were spared the devastation because the state Senate was not on the ballot that year....

    TRENTON -- State Senate Republican leader Tom Kean Jr. on Thursday said he'd support an increase in the state's minimum wage in exchange for a middle class tax cut. And he said Gov.-elect Phil Murphy should dump his called-for "millionaire's tax" increase. Kean, R-Union, said he was willing to raise the state's minimum wage to a level that is "modern and fair," but stopped short of agreeing to the $15 per hour sought by Murphy.

    HACKETTSTOWN, N.J. — The Republican candidate for governor of New Jersey sat on a plush beige couch in the Republican mayor’s condo, surrounded by Republican county officials and politicians, and offered up her plan to stem what is perhaps the state’s most daunting challenge — its deepening property tax crisis. She adopted it, she said, from an unexpected source. “This is a page out of the Democratic playbook, it really is,” Kim Guadagno, the lieutenant governor said, noting that the plan came from a proposal in deep-blue Illinois. With Republicans controlling the White House, both chambers of Congress and having...

    In a surprise move, a Kean University graduate accused of sending Twitter messages threatening black students on campus appeared in court Monday and pleaded guilty to the charge. Kayla McKelvey, 25, of Union Township, pleaded guilty to a single count of third-degree creating a false public alarm, acting Union County Prosecutor Grace Park said in a statement. In exchange for her plea, the prosecutor's office will recommend she receive a 90-day jail sentence, Park said. McKelvey, who is black, must also agree to pay $82,000 in restitution for the police response and investigation of the threats.

UNION, N.J., April 26 — The letter from George Washington is pasted between poetry and party invitations, stuffed into a dusty scrapbook amid jokes and cutouts of handsome men, and all the highlights of a lucky little girl’s life. It was written in May 1787 and addressed to Jacob Morris, grandfather of Julia Kean, the precocious...

    A black alumnus of Kean University was charged by police Tuesday for making series of anti-black death threats against the university over Twitter. In the midst of the November student protests at Missouri University and Yale University, nearly 100 Kean students took part in rallies against racism. But shortly afterwards, a Twitter account called @keanuagainstblk promised violence against black students, making both bombing and shooting threats. “i will kill every black male and female at kean university [sic]” the account promised. But police tracked the tweets backs to Kayla-Simone McKelvey, a former Kean student and one of the leaders of...

Breaking News: Legislator calls for investigation into Kean University's $219K conference tableIt costs more than $44,000 in tuition to attend Kean University for four years, and many of the school’s students struggle to pay the bill.  But the taxpayer-supported school in the township of Union spent $219,000 so far and has authorized up to $270,000 — about the average price of a house in the nearby working-class neighborhood — for a custom-made, circular conference table that seats 23 and features data ports, microphones and an illuminated...

    If you follow new GOP chief Michael Steele around these days, you can bet you’ll hear him bring up New Jersey’s gubernatorial race this year. He wants that blue state red again. From top to bottom, the GOP is talking about New Jersey. Here at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell reminded the crowds that the last time New Jersey had a conservative candidate for governor, he won with 70% of the vote (Tom Kean, 1984). That’s 70% — in New Jersey. After that victory it is inexplicable that New Jersey’s Republican intelligentsia determined...

But it's the bad guys who are less safe. In a Washington Post op-ed, 9/11 Commission chairman Thomas Kean and vice chairman Lee Hamilton ponder the question of whether we are safer now than we were on that tragic day. They conclude the war in Iraq has made us less safe. They are wrong. "No conflict" they opine, "drains more time, attention, blood and treasure and support...

Lawerence Korb, the ever weak and wobbly former Reagan's DOD official (I don't know how he could be the same then as he is now and measure up to Reagan's strength of character), AND Gen. Jack Keane (ret.) in hearing. Gen. Keane is hitting it out of the park .. Korb said we pulled troops out of Viet Nam to preserve the military, and Keane was unabashed in his contempt for those remarks and that opinion. Keane is praising the courage, command structure, morale and re-enlistment (in huge numbers) of...

    In New Jersey's senatorial campaign, Republican candidate Tom Kean Jr.'s aides are charging that opponents "already have resorted to Election Day dirty tricks." Last night, vandals chained shut the Kean campaign's headquarters in Mountainside, N.J., and broke keys off in the door locks to prevent entry, according to aides. "It's Jersey ... this is not surprising," Kean spokeswoman Jill Hazelbaker told us. "It's the Menendez campaign, or their supporters," she added, but without offering evidence. "It's just a lot of noise," was the response from campaign aides for Democratic incumbent Bob Menendez. They say they have "thousands" of lawyers at...

By John Heilemann Illustration by Darrow   T he yarmulkes are out in force in Sopranos country.
