The wrong kind of Republican
for New Jersey

In 2002, Scott Garrett ran as a moderate, mainstream Republican. Two years in Congress have proven that nothing could be further from the truth.

Other News
Scott Garrett gets another two years... But don't despair. We've proven that Garrett is about as vulnerable as a Congressman can get. We would love to believe that Mr. Garrett will now stand up for the voters in his district instead of the special interests. If that happens then our work is done.

But, most likely, Garrett will continue to do what he does best: Ignore the needs of Northern New Jersey while pushing a radical agenda that a majority of the Fifth District does not support. Should that happen, we will be there, to make sure he is held accountable for his actions.

Stay tuned...

Rep. Scott Garrett (NJ-5) claims to be a mainstream Republican. But on the record, he is one of the most radical of the right-wing zealots in the U.S. House of Representatives. He is out of touch with the values of a majority of the citizens of New Jersey's Fifth District, the people he is supposed to represent.

With considerable help from the extremist Club for Growth, Scott Garrett helped drive moderate Republican Marge Roukema out of the House seat she held for decades. Since taking her seat in 2003, his first-term voting record has been driven by an ideology that is out of place in our state. Scott Garrett is the Christian Coalition’s poster-boy in New Jersey. Garrett has voted against the entire New Jersey Congressional delegation - Republicans and Democrats - an astounding 43 times! His positions are so extreme that he doesn't publish his votes on his own website.

We publish his votes here because, as concerned citizens, we believe his constituents should know the real record of Scott Garrett. We have documented the sources and specific votes Garrett cast as a freshman congressman - votes that are so at odds with his constituents that he refuses to discuss them.

Where's Garrett? - Editorial, The Bergen Record, 10/1/04

Why is Scott Garrett hiding from his record?

Garrett is anti-abortion even when a woman has been violently raped or is a victim of incest. 70% of people in our district have said that they are pro-choice. Garrett voted for the so-called "partial birth abortion" bill even though that procedure was only performed in extreme cases including threat to the life of the mother. - 10/02/03.
