Mount Laurel, NJ – Following a thorough vetting process, the Burlington County Republican Screening Committee recommended an outstanding slate of 2020 congressional candidates Saturday morning, which the full county committee voted unanimously to endorse.
To begin the work now to unseat the incumbent Democrats pushing their radical agenda in Washington, D.C., the committee backed:
Claire Gustafson in the First Congressional District
David Richter in the Second Congressional District
Kate Gibbs in the Third Congressional District
“The Burlington County Republican Committee has a long history of successfully recruiting and supporting diverse and dynamic candidates for elected office,” said Chairman Sean Earlen. “We’re proud to continue that tradition with Claire Gustafson, David Richter, and Kate Gibbs, who are ready to bring the values and priorities of South Jersey to Washington, and fight back against the do-nothing Democrats in Congress.”
Speaking specifically about the Third District, which covers 90% of the county, Earlen said that Kate Gibbs is the exact right candidate for what will be one of the most competitive races in the country.
“Andy Kim went to Washington promising to vote against Nancy Pelosi, and then broke that promise with his first vote. Now he’s toeing the party line again with this baseless impeachment stunt instead of doing the bipartisan work he was elected to do,” said Earlen. “He’s a failure and needs to go.”
“By nominating a millennial woman with a proven record of results like Kate Gibbs, we can start bringing civility and sanity back to our nation’s capital,” continued Earlen. “As a South Jersey native, Kate is no DC insider. From being raised by a single mother and putting herself through college to cutting taxes every year she was in office and creating job opportunities for working families, Kate’s powerful story and broad-based appeal make her the only candidate running who can defeat Andy Kim in 2020.”
