LD1’s Testa, Simonsen celebrate with 200+ guests at NJGOP Toys for Tots bash

NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. – The NJGOP was in a holly jolly spirit on Tuesday night for its Second Annual Toys for Tots Holiday Party at New Brunswick’s Stress Factory.


200+ attendees joined Chairman Doug Steinhardt, Senator Michael Testa, Jr. (R-1) and Assemblyman-Elect Erik Simonsen (R-1) for a post-election celebration and toy drive.

Testa addressed the crowd and thanked Steinhardt for his unwavering support. The newly-minted legislator also gave an honorable mention to his consultant, Chris Russell, who masterminded the LD1 campaign.

The NJGOP made a bit of a comeback in 2019 after years of relative irrelevance, helping battleground campaigns make tens of thousands of voter contacts and making a dent in the messaging battle.
