Fitzherbert Suspends Campaign for Congress

Fitzherbert Suspends Campaign for Congress

Egg Harbor Township –Brian T. Fitzherbert, who was seeking the Republican nomination for Congress in New Jersey’s Second Congressional District, today announced that he has suspended his campaign.

“Seven months ago, I announced my campaign for Congress to be a citizen representative and use my background in the defense industry to bring much needed year-round jobs and economic development to South Jersey,” Fitzherbert said. “However, I have decided to suspend my campaign and follow President Trump’s lead in supporting Congressman Van Drew for re-election. I am also calling upon the other Republican candidates and those who have supported me to do the same so that our party can move forward united and build upon South Jersey’s success last November. It is essential that we unite as a party and fight together to ensure we re-elect President Trump in 2020.”

Fitzherbert continued, “I will continue to fight for my conservative values of protecting the unborn, upholding the 2nd Amendment, promoting greater fiscal responsibility and prioritizing the needs of our Veterans. And, as I always have, will continue to work to grow the next generation of leaders through the Young Republican Organization. Thank you for the opportunity to run for Congress. God Bless South Jersey.”

The Fitzherbert campaign had received over fifty endorsements from elected officials and community leaders across South Jersey, as well as the endorsement from New Jersey Right to Life PAC as the preferred candidate for the pro-life community.
