Today, self-described first-generation American Dr. Rik Mehta announced his candidacy for U.S. Senate. The pharmacist and lawyer from Morris County said he is running to defeat U.S. Senator Cory Booker.
“While Cory Booker campaigns around the country for his doomed presidential bid, the New Jersey economy continues to tank and our beautiful towns are becoming destitute,” said Dr. Mehta. “For too long our state has been failed by socialist politicos like Cory, who continue to build their careers off the backs of our proud immigrant communities – while real New Jerseyans continue to struggle. No more. I spent my life fighting for communities and that’s what I’ll do in Washington.”
