Who will take the seat that Congressman Frank Lobiondo has held for decades? Is Atlantic County GOP leadership confident they can beat (D) Jeff Van Drew in November? Or are they under the impression that a ‘blue wave’ in inevitable, where Democrats are gonna bounce back?
Seth Grossman is a leading candidate for that 2nd district Congressional seat being vacated by Frank Lobiondo. With President Trump doing better in the polls, does Grossman have a shot at riding the Trump Train to victory?
LISTEN: Some radio commercials that Grossman is running.
At one time, it was cool for Republicans to take shots at the President. Lobiondo did that often. Other Republicans kept quiet. Today, most GOP candidates for Congress now say they support him.
Seth Grossman recently wrote on his GrossmanForCongress.com blog: When the campaign started last February, only I and “Bikers for Trump” Mark McGovern openly and proudly supported Trump. (McGovern later decided to support me, rather than run himself.)
From the beginning, I supported this 5 Point MAGA program to Make America Great Again:
1. Enforce Immigration Laws. Build the Border Wall. End Chain Migration from Countries That Hate Us. Reduce Legal Immigration to the Sustainable Levels Before Ted Kennedy Democrats Ruined Our Immigration Laws in 1965.
2. Repeal Expensive Obamacare Mandates We Don’t Want Or Need.
3. Protect 2d Amendment Rights. Enforce the Laws We Have and Let Schools Use Common Sense to Protect Our Kids.
4. Teach What Made America Great To Our Kids in Public Schools and Colleges Again.
5. Support President Trump And Our MAGA Agenda. Stop Obstruction, “Resistance” and Fake Impeachment Charges.
This month, polls show that Republican voters overwhelmingly support Trump. Now, it is easy for Republican candidates to say they are with him.
For the past two years, it was a lot different. I and hundreds of others here in South Jersey lost friends and business when we openly and actively supported Trump. However, we had a big impact.
Last year, Harvard University did a study on this. You can read it at: https://www.cjr.org/analysis/ breitbart-media-trump-harvard- study.php
It agreed that for more than a year before the 2016 election, more than 90% of all newspaper and TV coverage of Donald Trump was negative. That’s why Democrats sure Trump had no chance of winning. When Trump did win, Democrats turned to Harvard media experts to find out what happened.
Last year, Harvard experts analyzed “over 1.25 million stories published online between April 1, 2015 and Election Day 2016”. They then gave this report: “A right-wing media network anchored around Breitbart developed as a distinct and insulated media system, using social media as a backbone to transmit a hyper-partisan perspective to the world. This pro-Trump media sphere appears to have not only successfully set the agenda for the conservative media sphere, but also strongly influenced the broader media agenda, in particular coverage of Hillary Clinton”.
I and many conservatives in LibertyAndProsperity.com were an important part of that “right wing media network”. For months before the election, we spent many hours each day reviewing and responding to dozens of posts about Trump and issues affecting the election.
We systematically liked, shared and commented on Facebook posts and used Twitter to support Trump, and refute lies told about him. We deliberately directed most of our posts to voters in swing state Pennsylvania.
We remained just as active after the election. That’s how Trump’s job approval levels stayed high even though 90% of “mainstream” news stories about Trump continued to be negative. That’s why Google, Twitter, and Facebook are now doing all sorts of dirty tricks to try to stop us.

Editors Note: June 5 is the primary election. GOP voters have a simple choice.
#1 Support Grossman, a conservative, independent-minded candidate with skills and experience. An outsider, like Trump. [his own party didn’t want him, they preferred well funded insiders]
#2 Hope a well-funded millennial who’s main platform revolves around being the ‘first ____________’. Much like Hillary Clinton. We all know how that worked out.
