At the Middlesex County Republican Women’s Club’s annual Reagan Day celebration, conservative businessman Rich Pezzullo – who originally intended to run for U.S. Senate this year but changed gears with the intentions of pharma exec Bob Hugin – announced his candidacy to represent the Sixth District of New Jersey in the House of Representatives, the seat occupied by U.S. Rep. Frank Pallone (D-6).
“The people of the Sixth District are entitled to a representative who is determined to work to make America great again,” Pezzullo said in remarks at the event.
Doug Steinhardt, Chairman of the New Jersey Republican Party, was an honored guest at the celebration. “I look forward to working with Rich to give New Jerseyans the representation they deserve,” said the Chairman.
“We can no longer allow enemies of American progress like Frank Pallone to represent us when he and others like him are spending every day trying to hold our nation back. I am challenging him because I believe that the Sixth District deserves so much better — a representative they can rely on, that they can be proud of,” Pezzullo told the gathering. “Pallone was elected to Congress 30 years ago and has not accomplished anything. He is too far left even for his own rabidly leftist party. Isn’t it time for a Congressman who will work for a living?”
Also present was Republican US Senate candidate Hugin, who sounded hopeful about Pezzullo’s run, saying, “I fully endorse Rich’s candidacy and look forward to working with him.”
