Hugin gets another low-level Dem endorsement

By David Wildstein, September 25 2018 10:42 am

Former Middle Township Mayor Mike Voll, who served from 1982 to 2000, has endorsed Bob Hugin for the U.S. Senate.  Voll had initially been elected as a Democrat, switched to the GOP in the late 1990’s, and then became an independent.  He has now returned to the Democratic Party.

The Hugin campaign had secured a series of small-ball Democratic endorsements, including a Brick councilman, an Ocean County freeholder candidate, a one-time Democratic congressional candidate who lost by a 2-1 margin, and the mayor of a Sussex County town with a population of 851.

“Bob Hugin appeals across party lines, which is why I am supporting his campaign for U.S. Senate. He is a solid and reliable Marine veteran who will put people ahead of partisan politics and put New Jersey first when elected,” said Voll. “That is a welcome change from the crook, Bob Menendez, who has failed us in Washington as he has served special interests and himself for the past 25 years.”

Voll, 68, sought a political comeback in 2010 but lost a race for township committee to Susan Atkinson DeLanzo by a 55%-45% margin.
