Former N.J. College Democrat leader endorses Hugin, says Menendez “left our state behind”

TRENTON, N.J. — Bob Hugin is picking up more Democrat support today and some additional momentum in the form of support from a former leader of the New Jersey’s College Democrats.

A resident of Jersey City, Demetrius Terry, age 25 previously served two-terms as Executive Vice President for the College Democrats of NJ. He was also director of membership, head of the Seton Hall CD chapter, and even New Jersey Chair for the College Democrats of America’s Black Caucus.

He’s voting Republican in this year’s U.S. Senate race.

“As a proud progressive Democrat, I am proud to support Bob Hugin and would urge my fellow Democrats to do the same,” said Terry. “Bob Hugin is a different type of Republican who understands the issues that the people of New Jersey care about. He will be a strong, independent voice for the people of our state. Bob Menendez has left our state behind and I can no longer support career politicians putting self-interest politics ahead of the people and state of New Jersey.”
