Egg Harbor Township—Last week South Jersey Republican and Defense Contractor Brian T. Fitzherbert launched his 2020 campaign for New Jersey’s 2nd Congressional District (NJ-02). Fitzherbert is seeking the Republican nomination to earn the right to face freshman Democrat Congressman Jeff Van Drew in November 2020.
NJ-02 is one of the top congressional seats that the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) has targeted for election 2020. “Control of the House balances on winning back these historically republican congressional seats, which includes NJ-02,” Fitzherbert said. President Trump won the 2nd Congressional District 50.6% – 46% in 2016.
Much like in his professional career, Fitzherbert has put together a team with national experience and the best in their field. Ethan Zorfas and Evan Kozlow of Axiom Strategies, Brett Loyd of The Polling Company, digital strategists from The Prosper Group and Amanda Woloshen Glass, the former Campaign Manager and State Director for former Congressman Leonard Lance (NJ07), will serve as Fitzherbert’s campaign team.
“The team is in great company with Amanda at the helm along with Axiom Strategies, given the firm has helped elect 78 current Members of Congress” Fitzherbert said.
Amanda is a veteran political strategist and government affairs specialist with an expertise in the areas of campaign management, communications and messaging. She has a successful track record of winning campaigns and successfully building issue-oriented and diverse grassroots coalitions.
The Polling Company is proud to be recognized as one of the nation’s most respected polling and market research consulting firms.
The Prosper Group is a national leader in digital advertising and online fundraising for GOP candidates and have contributed to the digital strategy of more winning campaigns than any other digital-first GOP consulting firm.
New Jersey’s 2nd Congressional District covers all of Atlantic, Cape May, Cumberland and Salem Counties, as well as parts of Gloucester, Ocean, Burlington, and Camden Counties.
