Former Republican gubernatorial candidate Steve Rogers, an early supporter of Donald Trump’s campaign for the presidency and an elected official in Essex County, has endorsed Antony Ghee for the Republican nomination for Congress in New Jersey’s 11th district.
“During the 2016 presidential election many of us worked very hard to elect Donald Trump to the presidency. Sadly, there were too many Trenton politicians who didn’t stand with us when they could have. I won’t be endorsing any of them,” said Steven Rogers. “I am, however, willing to endorse candidates who will support President Trump’s efforts to Make America Great Again. To that end, I’m pleased to endorse Tony Ghee, a fellow military officer, an outsider from the swamp, and a man who will energize our party in 2018 and beyond.”
Rogers is referring to Ghee’s primary opponent, Assemblyman Jay Webber (R-Morris Plains).
Rodgers says that Republicans “must begin to embrace and engage people from all walks of life. In my view, Tony Ghee is the face of a new dynamic GOP that will welcome the Republicans long forgotten by the establishment.
“I support Tony because I have full faith in him. He will help Make American and New Jersey Great Again.”
Ghee says that he is humbled to have the backing of Rogers, “someone who has defended our country in uniform and served his community in law enforcement and now as a Nutley Commissioner.”
“Steve has long been a vocal advocate for our Veterans, law enforcement and President Trump,” Ghee said. ” I thank Steve for his support of our campaign and look forward to working with him towards victory in June and November.”
