They're not the same — really

A mailing to District 25 Republicans by Doug Cabana labors to tell people that Assembly candidate Anthony M. Bucco is not state Sen. Anthony R. Bucco.

The younger Bucco is  running for the Assembly along with Cabana and incumbent Mike Carroll. The elder Bucco is not running this year.

The mailing, which is a tabloid newspaper, shows pictures of father and son and asks, “Can you tell the difference?”

Under the pictures, it asks, “Good Republicans don’t let good Republicans confuse loyalty with cronyism.”

  1. A Good Republican says:

    Come on Fred, you left out that Droug Cabna is not “Morris County Republican News”. Now is that a misrepresentation? I look forward to seeing your comment.

    Let’s see : Doug Cabana is the same as the “Morris County News” Guess they are not the same. What do you think Fred?

  3. gardner12 says:

    That’s rude and the newspaper should allow it to be posted!

  4. Hey Good Republican, what are you talking about?

  5. LOL says:

    Now that is funny; however, good Republicans don’t let other Republicans resort to cannibalism!

  6. RICHARD BABCOCK says:

    Anthony Bucco is a fine man that deserves respect and the trust of all the voters.. The recent “publication” by his opponent is complete with mis-representations and untruths. I am saddened by the level of political and personal slurs that have come out recently. When the political process goes down to the level of personal attacks and the spreading and misrepresentations, and lies, it demonstrates a lack of the ability to compete based on ideas, values, and true leadership.

    This is the same stuff going in the 21st district. Many voters won’t know the difference between husband and wife!

  8. what? says:

    Richard, you’ve got to be kidding me. THERE IS NOTHING IN THAT PAPER THAT IS FALSE. NOTHING. THERE ISN’T EVEN A SINGLE PERSONAL ATTACK IN THAT PAPER.

    Tony Jr. has done NOTHING but get public contracts to the tune of millions and millions. I wonder if he’d get those same contracts if his name weren’t Tony Bucco.

    Not to mention he put his ex-wife in the hospital. I’m sure the Dems will love that little tidbit if this little creep get’s the nomiation.

    GOOD REPUBLICAN DON’T ALLOW GOOD REPUBLICANS TO VOTE FOR CRONYISM AND NEPOTISM!

  9. It seems to me that Doug and his close advisors are desperate now that we are near the end of the primary. Promises of a positive campaign were a lie and the distorsions in that hateful newpaper show how little he really is as a person.

    Anyone who would hurt his own sister and family for political gain is most assuridly able to print distrotions. Ask Doug why he diplayed a picture of his siter with her Ex on You Tube ranther than a picture with her and Anthony, Any person who treats his family like that does not deserve to be elected to Dog Catcher.
