Grassroots supporters of Donald Trump want to send Assembly Minority Leader Jon Bramnick (R-Westfield) a message that bashing the president won’t fly by recruiting a challenger against the nine-term incumbent in the June Republican primary.

“We will primary any Republican who doesn’t represent a Republican platform or bashes the president,” said Joseph Rudy Rullo, the founder of New Jersey MAGA Republicans.  “I would love to unite conservatives with (GOP state chairman Doug Steinhardt) to remove Bramnick.”

In November, one of Trump’s top political allies in the state, Nutley Commissioner Steve Rogers, said that when Republicans like Bramnick bash Trump they hurt the GOP brand.

While Trump’s statewide approvals are upside-down (42%-55%), among Republicans he has a job approval rating of 92%-5%.

Bramnick has not faced a primary challenge since 2009.

  1. Very glad to hear. Bramnicj is RINO. He has no conservative values and votes and talks more like a liberal. Hope they oust him and get behind a real conservative.
