“Sean got his start as my first Press Secretary when I served as a U.S. Congressman,” Pappas said in an email blast. “I’m honored that he’ll be joining us back in Branchburg on Sunday.”

Said Spicer:

“I am excited to be joining my former boss Mike Pappas in Branchburg on Sunday, August 22nd for an afternoon reception and discussion of my latest book, ‘Leading America’. I hope you’ll join us!

“Mike has served as Mayor, a U.S. Congressman in the House of Representatives, and as the Regional Administrator of the US Small Business Administration. He is uniquely qualified to serve New Jerseyans in the State Senate.”

On July 21, 2017, Spicer announced his intention to resign as White House Press Secretary. … According to The New York Times, Trump asked Spicer to stay on, but Spicer announced his resignation after telling the President he “vehemently disagreed” with the appointment of Anthony Scaramucci.

Van Drew: ‘It Literally Is Time For This President To Resign’

CD2 GOP Rep. Van Drew called for the resignations of President Biden, Vice President Harris, and Speaker Pelosi over the withdrawal of troops in Afghanistan after Taliban forces stormed Kabul, according to Newsweek.

Van Drew on FOX News said ‘with this administration it is failure after failure after failure. I cannot believe I’m saying this, it literally is time for this president to resign. It is time for this vice president to resign. It is time for the Senate president and Speaker to resign. We need new people, even new Democrats, hopefully that are moderates’.

Ciattarelli Going to Israel

Via Facebook:

“Melinda and I are packed and ready to go on a very special visit to our sister nation, Israel. The objective is to learn more about the strong and important ties New Jersey and Israel share culturally and economically, and lay the groundwork for a Ciattarelli Administration to strengthen those ties. I am grateful to have this opportunity, and look forward to the work we will do together in the coming days.”

He posted a follow-up to that post 15 minutes ago from the airport:

“My visit to Israel serves two important objectives:
1. Meet with business leaders interested in establishing companies in New Jersey and learn what my administration can do to improve our business climate as well as ensure their success.
2. Show solidarity with Israel. I opposed the BDS movement before as a state legislator, and I will continue to as your Governor.”
