Aura Dunn endorses Ciattarelli in GOP gubernatorial primary

By David Wildstein, January 15 2021 1:45 pm

Assemblywoman Aura Dunn (R-Mendham) today endorsed Jack Ciattarelli for governor, becoming the 11th Republican legislator to back the new front-runner to take on Gov. Phil Murphy.

“Jack is a small businessman, an entrepreneur, and a family man. I have no doubt his heart is in the right place and has what it takes to fix New Jersey,” said Dunn.  “He has the management acumen to deliver for the hardworking residents of this state.”

Ciattarelli has also won support from State Sens. Chris Brown (R-Ventnor), Kip Bateman (R-Branchburg), Michael Testa, Jr. (R-Vineland) and Kristin Corrado (R-Totowa), Assemblywomen BettyLou DeCroce (R-Parsippany) and Jean Stanfield (R-Westampton), and Assemblymen Brian Bergen (R-Denville), Ryan Peters (R-Hainesport), Christopher DePhillips (R-Wyckoff) and Kevin Rooney (R-Wyckoff).

Dunn won special election conventions in the 25th district in 2019 and 2020.  Her November 2020 victory gave her the highest number of total votes ever received by a State Assembly candidate under the current 40-district plan.

“Having just won competitive races, I know what the people want in their leaders and what it takes to win tough elections. It’s about service and bringing common sense back to Trenton,” Dunn said. “I know that having Jack at the top of our ticket will benefit all the voters this November. I am happy to support and endorse his candidacy for Governor.”
