Conservative activist Joey Rullo, who sought the GOP nomination for governor in 2017, is endorsing independent Tricia Flanagan for U.S. Senate in the general election.
Rullo says that Republican Bob Hugin is not a conservative Republican, partly because he bashes President Donald Trump.
“I’ve never done this after a primary, but I can’t support someone who took advantage if cancer patients, said Rullo. “I warned the establishment this issue would blow their chance for a no-brainer race after Menendez indictment.”
Rullo’s position on Hugin puts him in disagreement with Menendez, who has accused the former drug company CEO of being a Trump pawn.
“When he loses, I call upon all conservatives, Trump MAGA supporters and Republicans to remove these state GOP RINO (Republicans in name only) leaders from power.”
Rullo said that Libertarian nominee Murray Sabrin is not a viable option for conservatives.
“Sabrin opposes MAGA agenda opposes Trumps wall he isn’t an option and shouldn’t be for any New Jersey Trump supporter,” Rullo said.
The former gubernatorial candidate says he’s spending some of his time helping two South Jersey Republicans running for Congress.
“I’m heavily promoting MacArthur and Grossman who are both MAGA candidates who support Trump. I’ve been leading the narrative their opponents will impeach Trump,”Rullo said. “With that being said I’m supporting the line except Hugin.”
