New Jersey Right to Life is recommending that their members vote for independent Tricia Flanagan for the U.S. Senate.
This could draw Republican votes away from Bob Hugin, although most pro-life GOP officials are supporting him anyway.
“Unfortunately, both Democratic and Republican candidates for the U.S. Senate are pro-abortion. The Democrat candidate is Robert Menendez, who is running for his third term as U.S. Senator. The Republican candidate who is challenging him is Bob Hugin,” the NJRTL PAC said in a message to its membership. “Pro-life voters who once again find themselves disenfranchised by the two-party system can consider voting for Tricia Flanagan, a third party pro-life candidate for U.S. Senate.”
The pro-life PAC has endorsed Rep. Tom MacArthur (R-Toms River) and Rep. Chris Smith (R-Hamilton), and is backing Assemblyman Jay Webber in his bid for New Jersey’s 11th district congressional seat.
Paul Dilks, who is challenging Rep. Donald Norcross (D-Camden) and Richard Pezzullo, who is running against Rep. Frank Pallone, Jr. (D-Long Branch), have also scored NJRTL endorsements.
The group is also backing independent Clenard Childress for State Assembly in the 34th district, Morris County freeholder candidate John Krickus, Sussex County Surrogate Gary Chiusano, and Sussex GOP freeholder candidates Dawn Fantasia and Joshua Hertzberg.
