Re­sults from many lo­cal elec­tions are on the radar as de­voted Repub­li­cans won­der if they can some­how flip their state from blue to red. This is cer­tainly true in the Gar­den State, where the just-formed New Jer­sey Women for Trump went from 0 to 6,500 mem­bers in a mat­ter of weeks. The new group is now go­ing full throt­tle to per­suade lo­cal vot­ers to jump on the prover­bial Trump Train. The in­de­pen­dent grass­roots or­ga­ni­za­tion is fierce.

Though their mis­sion is a challenge, there are promis­ing trends afoot. As of the end of Septem­ber, New Jer­sey was home to 2.3 mil­lion Democrats and

1.3 mil­lion Repub­li­cans. More sig­nif­i­cantly, 2.4 mil­lion vot­ers around the state have not for­mally claimed any party af­fil­i­a­tion. Mean­while, Repub­li­cans out­num­ber the Dems in six of 21 coun­ties, while Pres­i­dent Trump was fa­vored by all vot­ers in nine coun­ties in 2016. The GOP ladies for Trump take this as a sig­nal to speak out and get busy.

“No longer will we be silent. No longer will we cower to the left. No longer will we sit back and be pas­sive. The time is now. Be strong. Be re­silient. Be loud. Let’s unify and cel­e­brate our great pres­i­dent,” the group ad­vises.

“We rec­og­nize that the Demo­cratic party has be­come cor­rupt in unimag­in­able ways,” they add.
