Mark Dunec, who won 37% of the vote as the Democratic candidate for Congress against Rodney Frelinghuysen in 2014, has endorsed Republican Bob Hugin for United States Senate.
This is the second endorsement of a Republican by Dunec: he’s already supporting Jay Webber, a GOP Assemblyman who is seeking Frelinghuysen’s open seat against Democrat Mikie Sherrill.
“Bob Hugin is a refreshing antidote to the type of hyper-partisan, career politicians we have in Washington, D.C. and Trenton, N.J. He is a man of integrity, a person with a pure heart who speaks honestly and directly about what needs to be done in government. I am inspired by his commitment to cross party lines to reach a consensus to resolve the very real problems faced by our nation and state,” said Dunec. “I am urging my fellow Democrats and all voters to consider Bob Hugin for Senate and not allow today’s toxic climate of political extremism push us to blindly vote for corrupt, career politicians. We must rise above party politics and do what Bob Hugin promises to do — to do what is right for New Jersey and the American public.”
Dunec has never held public or party office.
