“I want to sincerely thank each of the members of the Cumberland Democratic County Steering Committee for all the time they invested in their endorsement process, the full Caucus for their support, and would also like to congratulate all the others who won their endorsements tonight including Carol Musso and George Castellini, and Bruce Cooper.
“I am grateful that the Committee took the time to thoroughly evaluate and interview each of the candidates and honored that they recognized that I am the best qualified candidate to beat Jeff Van Drew and represent the needs of the working families of Cumberland County. To all the members of the Caucus, whether they supported me tonight or not, I remain committed to earning your support, will work as hard as possible to ensure everyone in Cumberland County is represented and that our full Party has the strongest possible voice.
“Beating Jeff Van Drew is going to come down to doing the work, asking for support, taking nothing for granted, bringing people together, and having a true track record of supporting our community. It is clear that in the last two years, Jeff Van Drew have forgotten these key principles and NJ-02 is now demanding a change.
“Finally, I want to continue to thank my army of volunteers across the district, from teenagers to retirees, who have all been instrumental in helping me earn every vote.
“It is my determination as the Democratic candidate for the 2nd congressional district to provide leadership that will always put the needs and demands of people first. I am proud to stand with the Cumberland County Democratic Party as their chosen candidate to beat Jeff Van Drew and I am grateful for everyone’s support tonight.”
