NJ Right to Life PAC backs Howarth

By Nikita Biryukov, May 07 2019 5:22 pm

The state’s largest anti-abortion group backed Joe Howarth’s off-the-line re-election bid Tuesday.

“Your commitment to the defense of life is second to none,” NJ Right to Life PAC Executive Director Marie Tasy said in a letter to Howarth. “Your legislative record has been firmly pro-life, from your sponsorship of the constitutional amendment banning funding of abortions to your support of the Pain Capable Unborn Protection Act. You have always stood with us to protect those that cannot protect themselves. It is only right that we stand with you in the Republican primary and endorse your candidacy for Assembly in the Eighth legislative district.”

Howarth is running of the line as a pro-Trump candidate after being dropped from the party line.

Burlington County’s Republican leadership believes Howarth attempted to join State Sen. Dawn Addiego on the other side of the aisle when the senator defected from the Republican party in January.

Multiple sources have told the New Jersey Globe Howarth was unreachable in the two days immediately following Addiego’s defection.

Howarth denies attempting to switch parties.

He faces Assemblyman Ryan Peters and Burlington County Sheriff Jean Stanfield in the primary.
