Senate Seat Up For Grabs In November Election - My9 New Jersey

Senate Seat Up For Grabs In November Election

Posted: Updated:
Trenton, New Jersey (My9NJ) - This November, Senator Cory Booker will have to defend his seat and run for his first full term as New Jersey’s junior senator.

At this time, Booker’s Republican opponent is still unknown as four men are vying for your vote. The candidate will be selected on June 3, 2014.

One of the Republican candidates running for senate is Rich Pezzullo. He was a nominee for U.S. Senate in 1994 and 1996 and he discussed why this election will be different for him.

“Those times we were really trying to get the conservative movement started in New Jersey and I was running as an independent under the New Jersey conservative label. We were successful. We got the Republican Party finally understanding that there’s a need and a voice for Republicans, that many of us have been active in the Republican Party for many years since then. In this particular race there was no one coming forward with a clear unapologetic full throated conservative message which is that we have to use the playbook that can solve problems at every level of government,” he explained.

For this election, Pezzullo said he thinks New Jersey voters are going to respond most to job growth and that Senator Booker should focus his efforts more on the important issues facing the Garden State rather than social media.

“Cory Booker has a lot of friends in California that are giving him piles of money, California doesn’t need a third senator, New Jersey needs a senator,” he said.
