Pigeon, I spoke to the mayor this morning and he said there was absolutely no truth to these rumors. Just thought I'd note that.

We thought it was the MSOS vs K.I.D.S. People at difference with each other not necessarily republicans fighting other GOP . It would be fair game to say that if the mayor got a ticket together and ran in a GOP primary, which some think he should have done. But that's past us. From your account it appears that there are five committee spots up for a challenge in the GOP. Is there any feeling where the winds blowing in those races?

BurlCo voters have little or no reason to vote in today's primary election, and we might discover how close we can get to zero percent turnout. But pointless primaries are nothing new in NJ. Can anyone remember casting a meaningful vote in a NJ presidential primary? Makes you wonder why the public funds party primaries. Might be a good day to consider alternatives. Today in California they're trying out a "Top Two Primary," where top two vote-getters in various races face off in November election. Makes a lot of sense, which today's pointless primary does not. http://www.npr.org/blogs/itsallpolitics/2012/06/04/154296559/californias-top-two-primary-system-faces-first-statewide-test?ft=1&f=1001

Come on homebrew I'm surprised you would quote anything from NPR. What a left wing station that is funded by the taxpayers. Congress should cut back on it's funding maybe to non political areas. That idea is wacked. At least the BOE moved their elections to November saving taxpayers money.

You're so right. It's only news when Fox covers it. http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2012/06/04/while-most-eyes-on-wisconsin-recall-major-house-races-on-docket-as-well/ Note: NPR calls it a "Top Two Primary"; Fox refers to it as a "Jungle Primary"; I think I'll just call it a meaningful election, unlike today's primary in BurlCo.

"A little less than 10 percent of the electorate went to the polls [in BurlCo], according to unofficial voter tallies from the County Clerk’s Office." http://www.phillyburbs.com/news/local/burlington_county_times_news/voters-scarce-during-dull-primary-election/article_b06d665c-1cb9-56c2-b637-a0f02068eb01.html
