New Jersey Right to Life backs Fitzherbert against Van Drew

Tasy calls him the only candidate who will fight for ‘babies in the womb and their mothers’

By David Wildstein, January 09 2020 9:03 am

The New Jersey Right to Life PAC has endorsed Brian Fitzherbert for Congress in New Jersey’s 2nd district Republican primary against the incumbent, Rep. Jeff Van Drew (R-Dennis).

The endorsement immediately follows a POLITCO report that Van Drew signed a Republican discharge petition to force the house to consider anti-abortion legislation.

Van Drew had been solidly pro-choice during his seventeen years in the New Jersey Legislature.

“We are proud to endorse Brian T. Fitzherbert for Congress in New Jersey’s 2nd District,” said Marie Tasy, Executive Director of NJRTL PAC. “He is the only congressional candidate in South Jersey who we feel will fight for babies in the womb and their mothers.  Brian is the clear conservative in this race. We look forward to having an advocate in that seat again.”

Fitzherbert, former Hill International CEO David Richter and former Trump administration official Robert Patterson had already been seeking the GOP nomination to challenge Van Drew before last month’s party switch.  All three remain in the race.

“I’m a true Conservative and unmistakably pro-life and will never waver from my values. I was raised in a Christian household and believe as I’ve said countless times in public, that a heartbeat begins a life just as it ends one,” Fitzherbert said.  “I will fight to defund Planned Parenthood and any other organization that promotes abortion. “
