Three-time Webber opponent endorses him

Marek Says Republican works with both parties

A Democrat who ran against Jay Webber for the State Assembly three times has now endorsed his ex-rival for New Jersey’s 11th district congressional seat.

Wayne Marek was Webber’s opponent in 2007,2009 and 2015.

“Jay has been a true leader for North Jersey,” said Wayne Marek. “I’m endorsing him over Mikie Sherrill because I trust that he will go to Congress and work with both parties, just like he has done in the Assembly. His opponent seems to think that simply opposing Donald Trump is a platform and a plan for our country, but that’s not enough. I know that Jay will work with leaders from both parties when it’s right for the district and stand up to them when it’s wrong.”

Webber, who faces Democrat Mikie Sherril in the general election, says he and Marek became friends despite being political opponents.

“Wayne and I may be from different political parties, we may have been political opponents in the past, and we may not agree on everything, but that will never prevent either of us from developing a friendship or doing what’s right for our country,” said Jay Webber. “I appreciate Wayne’s endorsement of my candidacy for Congress, and I will always work with both Republicans and Democrats to fight for North Jersey.”

One thought on “Three-time Webber opponent endorses him

  1. Wayne:
    Are you on drugs?
    Didn’t I know you when you were passionate about real immigration reform and human rights causes including women’s rights? I’m so disappointed that you are not able to support the country during this crisis.
    I hope I will not see you at a Democratic gathering in the future and if I do, please do not greet me as a long time friend.
    Also, please remember your endorsement doesn’t mean jack.
