Young Republican Federation of New Jersey Chairman Joe Sarno endorsed Brian Fitzherbert for the Republican nod in the state’s second congressional district Thursday.
“It is my pleasure to endorse Brian Fitzherbert for Congress in New Jersey’s 2nd Congressional District,” Sarno said. “While he was Chairman of the Atlantic County Young Republicans, I saw first-hand Brian’s relentless commitment to building our party from the grassroots level. Furthermore, his principled support of our Constitution and his unwavering dedication to South Jersey make him an easy choice to back. Brian is the best Republican to take on Nancy Pelosi ally Jeff Van Drew in 2020.”
Currently, Fitzherbert is one of three Republicans vying to take on Rep. Jeff Van Drew, a right-of-center Democrat who last year defeated former Atlantic County Freeholder Seth Grossman to win the seat left open by Rep. Frank LoBiondo’s retirement.
“I am proud to receive the endorsement of Joe Sarno. Joe is a prominent Republican leader with deep South Jersey roots. As a former Councilman he knows the importance of fighting for taxpayers and making New Jersey a place where people can afford to live and stay,” Fitzherbert said. “Joe’s work galvanizing the Young Republican Federation in the state is truly impressive and I look forward to him joining me on the campaign trail as we fight to win back the House of Representatives in 2020.”
