New Jersey Governor Chris Christie has nominated Assemblyman Michael Patrick Carroll, one of two RLC-endorsed lawmakers in New Jersey, to serve as a judge on the state Superior Court.
Assemblyman Carroll was endorsed by the RLC in 2009. Carroll has served in the Assembly continuously since 1995. His legislative accomplishments include raising the speed limit, a ban on partial birth abortion, tax relief for residents, and welfare reform. He has been involved in Republican politics since the mid-1970s and has a strong libertarian streak.
Of course, Republican Liberty Caucus favorite Judge Andrew Napolitano sat on the New Jersey Superior Court bench from 1987 to 1995. He was the state’s youngest judge at the time and now hosts “Freedom Watch” on FOX Business Channel.
Michael Patrick Carroll was a good choice for the rule of law. He supports limited government, gun rights, and marijuana decriminalization.
