Hirsh Singh will challenge Cory Booker for U.S. Senate

Atlantic County Republican filed with FEC today

Hirsh Singh will seek the Republican nomination for U.S. Senate in 2020 against incumbent Cory Booker.

“Booker has brought nothing to New Jersey,” Singh told the New Jersey Globe.

Singh says he is skipping the exploratory phase and filed his campaign committee with the Federal Election Commission today.

“Having a U.S. Senator who’s not just resisting the president is critical,” said Singh.

Booker has not yet announced if he will run for re-election, although a new state law passed last fall allows him to simultaneously run for president and re-election to the Senate.

Singh, a 33-year-old engineer from Atlantic County who works in the aerospace and defense industries, is making his third bid for public office.  He lost GOP primaries for governor in 2017 and Congress in 2018.

The Shore News Network reported today that Singh has picked up the endorsement of Bill Palatucci, the Republican National Committeeman from New Jersey.  Their report also included praise of Singh by county chairmen in Somerset and Hudson counties, Atlantic County Executive Dennis Levinson, and Ocean County freeholder Virginia Haines, the Republican National Committeewoman.

Singh is the first Republican to announce their intention to challenge Booker, who was re-elected by a 56%-42% margin in 2014.

Some Republicans have encouraged Matt Rooney, a 33-year-old Camden County attorney and founder of the conservative SaveJersey website, to run.
