In an email to county committee members, newly-elected Hunterdon County GOP Chairman Gabe Plumer said he was disappointed that former Rep. Dick Zimmer (R-Delaware Township) for his endorsement of Democrat Joe Biden for president.

“While every American is entitled to his or her own opinion, endorsing someone who was the Vice President of an administration that regularly assaulted the Constitution, weakened our standing in the world, installed liberal Supreme Court justices, ignited class warfare for political convenience, and presided over government takeovers of private industry, is a bridge too far for any Republican, let alone a conservative one,” said Plumer.

Plumer, the 32-year-old mayor of Alexandria, said a group of 27 endorsements from GOP former U.S. Senators and members of the U.S. House of Representatives, don’t seem to understand that “Donald Trump doesn’t care which former Republican politician supports him.”

“That’s precisely why people voted for him in 2016 and that’s precisely why they will vote for him again in 2020,” Plumer said.

Zimmer, 76, is a former Hunterdon Republican county committeeman who represented the county in the U.S. House of Representatives, the State Senate and the State Assembly.
