Republican National Chair Ronna McDaniel stump for gubernatorial candidate Jack Ciattarelli and GOP legislative candidates on Tuesday, the Republican State Committee announced earlier this evening.
McDaniel will attend at the Burlington County Republican headquarters in Medford. She is among the few national Republicans to campaign for Ciattarelli, who said in a debate earlier this week that he prefers to seek votes on his own merits rather than ask former President Donald Trump to campaign for him.
Unswervingly loyal to Trump during his presidency, McDaniel was among a group of Republicans that alleged voter fraud after the last election and challenged the legitimacy of the results.
The granddaughter of former Michigan Gov. George Romney and the niece of U.S. Senator Mitt Romney, she became GOP National Chair after the 2016 election at the recommendation of President-elect Trump.
First Lady Jill Biden will be in Edison on Friday seeking votes for Ciattarelli’s Democratic opponent, Gov. Phil Murphy. Former President Barack Obama is due in Newark on October 21 for an Early Voting rally.
Vice President Kamala Harris was in New Jersey earlier this month to join Murphy on an official visit. Second Gentleman Doug Emhoff, who spent part of his childhood living in New Jersey, will campaign for Murphy this month.
