President Donald issued a last-minute endorsement of former investment banker Frank Pallotta’s fifth district House bid Saturday morning.
“@FrankPallottaNJ will be a great Congressman for the terrific people of New Jersey! He is Strong on the Economy & Jobs, Low Taxes, the Military, our Brave Law Enforcement, and your Second Amendment. Frank has my Complete and Total Endorsement! #NJ05,” Trump said on Twitter.
Pallotta is running to oust Rep. Josh Gottheimer (D-Wyckoff), the two-term congressman who co-chairs the House Problem Solvers Caucus.
The New Jersey Globe rates the race as likely Democratic.
“It’s an honor to receive President Trump’s official endorsement, and I look forward to a big win on Tuesday,” Pallotta said. “We must say no to Democrat Josh Gottheimer, who does not represent the interests of our district.”
