In an endorsement that seems lukewarm at best, State Sen. Chris Brown (R-Atlantic) says he’s backing Hirsh Singh for the Republican nomination or Congress in New Jersey’s 2nd district.
“I am happy to join with the grassroots members of the Atlantic County Republican Party in endorsing Hirsh Singh for Congress. I’m honored to be a member of a party that is inclusive and demonstrating diversity by supporting the first Indian-American Congressional candidate from the Second District.
Singh won the Atlantic County Republican convention last week and will run on the organization line the county Brown represents in the State Senate.
“No one has represented South Jersey and Atlantic County in the state Legislature better than Senator Chris Brown,” said Singh. “Winning his endorsement truly sets our campaign apart. I am humbled and honored to have the support of such a strong community leader and veteran like Senator Chris Brown.”
