TRENTON, N.J. — New Jersey Right to Life (NJRTL), New Jersey’s leading pro-life organization, released endorsements for five house candidates in Tuesday’s midterm elections on Sunday evening. The group also endorsed a handful of candidates running for state and local offices across the Garden State.
“I am so honored to receive this endorsement,” said Rich Pezzullo, the NJRTL endorsed candidate in NJ-06 challenging incumbent Democrat Frank Pallone. “I’ve been involved in the pro-life cause for many years, and I am looking forward to supporting the lives of the unborn as well as the welfare of mothers in crisis pregnancies and abortion survivors when I get to Washington.”
NJRTL passed on the U.S. Senate race in light of both major party candidates declaring themselves pro-choice.
