Burlington County Republican Congressional candidate Tony Porto exits the race
Hainesport, NJ- Today, former Hainesport Mayor (Burlington County) and fmr. Republican Municipal Chairman Tony Porto announced his intention to end his bid for congress in the Third Congressional district, for health reasons.
“First and foremost, I want to thank all those who have helped us get out our positive message for improving our nation.
Although I am a proud and lifelong Republican, and am dismayed by the choice hoisted upon us by an untrusted, one-person party leadership that begs to be disregarded (and we do have such a crisis of leadership in Burlington County,) in wake of recent diagnosis and prescribed medical treatment, my family must come first.
After addressing my health concerns, I will resume my devotion to public service. But for now, I need to spend time improving my health and recuperating with my family. Therefore, I will be exiting the race for United States Congress.”
