Old Bridge, NJ: Old Bridge Democratic Councilman Mark Razzoli has announced today his decision to run for Congress as a Republican; a decision that was “not made in haste, but a necessary one for anyone with a conscience” said Razzoli. “The Democratic Party that I knew has abandoned the American way of life, rule of law, and common sense, in favor of exaggerated, socialist ideology”, he added.
Razzoli’s video speech at a recent Old Bridge council meeting went viral, reaching close to two million people when it was posted by members of the community and law enforcement organizations. Emails, phone calls, and messages came in from all over the country including as far away as Alaska; all showing support for his “Americans First” message and encouraging him to run for office in his home state. Said Razzoli, “Public safety and national security should be our number one priority; no state legislator should put themselves in a position to make their own laws. Their job is to enforce the laws that exist and to protect the citizens of their respective states…public safety and law enforcement go hand in hand.”
Razzoli will challenge Democratic liberal Bonnie Watson-Coleman in 2020 for the Congressional seat that represents District 12, New Jersey. Razzoli has been critical of Watson-Coleman’s allegiance to the far-left socialists in Washington, DC stating, “They continue to place the wellbeing of illegal immigrants above that of American citizens and people have had enough.”
“I am not looking for a hashtag movement, nor am I seeking the proverbial 15 minutes of glory. I am a patriotic American and by running for Congress with the Republican Party, I will fight for the rights of American citizens and for their safety.”
