SHORT HILLS, N.J. – The national conservative group FreedomWorks for America has endorsed Rosemary Becchi for the 2020 U.S. House race in New Jersey’s 7th Congressional District.
“As a seasoned tax policy attorney, Becchi has served as an advisor to both the Internal Revenue Service and the Senate Finance Committee, where she co-authored the 529 College Savings Plan,” said FreedomWorksExecutive Director Noah Wall. “With her proven commitment to sensible spending, her commitment to free markets, and her strong conservative principles, Rosemary Becchi is the only candidate fit to serve the people of New Jersey’s Seventh Congressional District. FreedomWorks for America is proud to support a strong conservative such as Becchi this election cycle.”
“I am so thankful to have FreedomWorks’ endorsement for my Congressional campaign. It means a great deal to me to have the support of fellow Americans who understand that the only way we all can truly realize our potential is through the free market system and without an overbearing government taxing us to the point of making life unaffordable, which is the case in New Jersey,” added Becchi. “New Jersey families are eager to find leaders who will lower taxes, downsize our bloated, expensive government and promote policies that invigorate our free market system so the Garden State’s economy can grow and create the kinds of sustainable jobs that allow families to prosper here — and not feel like they must move out of the state to pursue their dreams.”
Freedomworks was founded by the Koch Brothers; its inaugural leaders included conservative luminaries Dick Armey, Jack Kemp, and Bill Bennett.
Becchi, a tax attorney with Capitol Hill and IRS experience, is squaring off with GOP N.J. Senate Leader Tom Kean Jr. for the Republican nomination in the Central Jersey district. Incumbent Democrat Tom Malinowski (who recently made news for an eyebrow-raising comment about illegal aliens and lawn care) is considered one of the region’s most vulnerable congressman for the 2020 cycle.
