Republican U.S. Senate candidate Hirsh Singh has raised $318,556 and has $28,602 cash-on-hand.

Singh is one of six candidates seeking the GOP nomination to challenge incumbent Cory Booker in November.

He raised $141,824 in the 4th quarter of 2019, and is carrying a debt of $18,704.  He spent $143,959 over the last three months of the year, and $289,953 total.

Singh launched his political career in 2017 as a candidate for the Republican gubernatorial nomination.  The Linwood resident finished third in a field of five candidates with 10% of the vote.

After briefly seeking the GOP nomination for U.S. Senate in 2018, he switched to a bid for Frank LoBiondo’s open U.S. Senate seat.  Singh lost the primary to former Atlantic County freeholder Seth Grossman by 2,232 votes, 39%-30%, finishing second out of four candidates.

Singh finished second at the Union County Republican convention this week.  In advance of the Somerset County GOP convention on Monday, Singh was endorsed on Friday by Republican State Committeewoman Janice Fields.
