Ciattarelli Releases Endorsements from 6 N.J. Counties

GOP primary candidate and incumbent Assemblyman Jack Ciattarelli (R-16) released dozens of endorsements from six New Jersey counties on Tuesday, a list which draws heavily from his home base district as well as a sampling of other key red-ish counties.

“New Jersey Republicans want an entirely new direction for our state and our party.  As a MBA/CPA, a successful entrepreneur and a Main Street business owner with a record of creating jobs, my campaign is about results, not rhetoric,” said Ciattarelli in a statement accompanying the released list.  “That positive and dynamic message is resonating loud and clear across the state, which is why our support continues to grow.  Today, I am proud to announce my first list of endorsements, including respected Republican leaders in Somerset, Hunterdon, Middlesex, Union, Warren and Mercer Counties.  I look forward to announcing additional endorsements from all over the state in the weeks to come.”
