Women for a Stronger New Jersey, a super PAC seeking to elect moderate Republican women has endorsed Holly Schepisi for State Senate in the 39th district.

“In the Assembly, Holly has been a strong voice for smart economic policy, an advocate for small business, and a leader in the fight to hold Governor Murphy accountable,” said Kathy Hugin, Laura Overdeck and Candy Straight, the founding board members of the PAC.  “A mom and a small business owner, she’s exactly the kind of thoughtful and bold leader NJ needs.”

Schepisi, 49, is challenging the longest serving Republican legislator in state history, 86-year-old, 12-term incumbent Gerald Cardinale for the Senate nomination.

“We will ensure that she has the financial support necessary to get her message out in the primary and general election,” Hugin, Overdeck and Straight said.  “While Senator Cardinale has served the 39th district well, he has held that office for 40 years. We believe it is time for a change. Holly will make an exceptional state senator.”

Women for a Stronger New Jersey has made independent expenditures on behalf of six legislative candidates since it was founded two years ago.
