Steinhardt calls for end to one-party rule in Trenton

Democrats feuding over EDA tax incentives

Republican State Chair Doug Steinhardt on Thursday levied the growing feud between Gov. Phil Murphy and South Jersey power broker George Norcross in a call for voters to break Democrats’ hold on Trenton.

“Governor Murphy and Democrat leaders in the legislature are locked into a war over power, not ideas. New Jersey desperately needs ideological diversity in the State house. Instead of racing to control more taxpayer dollars, our leaders in Trenton should be racing to find ways to send those dollars back into the pockets of middle class families and small businesses,” Steinhardt said. “One party rule is failing the people of New Jersey and it’s time for voters to send a conservative check and balance to the legislature. New Jersey deserves honest solutions to real problems.”

Democrats hold the governorship and 26 of the 40 seats in the state senate.

Their control of the assembly, where they hold 54 of 80 seats, is similarly vast.

Murphy, Norcross and Democrats with ties to the latter are feuding over tax incentives meted out by the state’s Economic Development Authority.

Still, Republicans held  the governorship for eight of the last ten years.
