Former Morristown councilman Dick Tighe has endorsed Mitchell Cobert for the Democratic nomination for Congress in New Jersey’s 11th district.
“I have known Mitchell for over 30 years and worked closely with him on numerous elections, not just my own where he served as my treasurer, but several Mayoral and Council campaigns,” said Tighe. “In his professional life he has represented many susceptible individuals who could have lost everything to unscrupulous financial advisors. He has always looked out for the most vulnerable.
Cobert has been essentially lost in the fray in his bid for Rodney Frelinghuysen’s seat. Former Navy helicopter pilot Mikie Sherrill has raised more than $2.3 million, the organization lines in all four counties and secured the endorsement of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. Tamara Harris has raised more than $581,00, while Cobert has raised a little more than $90,000.
“Mitch is truly a good person who works tirelessly and has a passion for helping others. He listens and seeks solutions. Simply put he cares. He would do an outstanding job representing all of us in Washington,” Tighe said.
