March 28, 2016. West Long Branch, NJ. (ONN) 2012 Libertarian Presidential nominee Gary Johnson made news this weekend when Monmouth University released the results of its latest poll.

And in a major surprise, it was Democrat Bernie Sanders who was left off the poll rather than the third party candidate.
December 1, 2015. Pompton Plaines, NJ. (ONN) Trump, Sanders, Lessig and Clinton are all talking about the problem of money in politics. None are proposing anything that will address the problem until after the 2016 elections. Sanders and Lessig seem to be counting on their election as President to frighten the legislators that are beholden to the Big Money contributors into passing meaningful Campaign Finance Reform (CFR) legislation sometime in 2017. It is possible, but not probable because the Big Money legislators will not fear their own re-election in 2018, 2020, etc.

This isn’t the first time the boisterous GOP Presidential hopeful has attacked his political rivals, their families and their constituents.
