1. As a NJ resident

I agree about the DNC putting up ads, but keep in mind that NJ does not have its own media market, and any politician who wants to put up ads here has to buy into NY and/or Philly (not cheap media markets!)

I was recently redistricted from a Democrat to Republican, and I plan on being a real pest to Chris Smith because I want him gone.

3. You are correct. Why are no NJ or NY Republican voters sounding off?
