TOMS RIVER, NJ – Ocean County GOP Chairman Frank Holman recently sent a letter to hundreds of elected Republican committee members last week telling them to boycott the political campaign of David Richter. Richter is embroiled in a head to head slugfest with Nancy Pelosi backed leftist Democrat Andy Kim. It has become one of the most important congressional races of 2020 and the leader of the local Republican party has checked out and went on a lengthy hunting trip to America’s wild west.
Today, Richter was elevated by the NRCC as a top tier “Young Guns” candidate.
House Republican Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy said, “These candidates are gaining serious momentum in their respective races. They’re working every single day to fight back against the Democrats’ socialist agenda and their success is critical to ensure we flip the House this November.”
“I’d like to thank Leader McCarthy and the NRCC for their recognition of our building momentum in this race. With their support and guidance, we will win back this seat from Andy Kim, flip the House and retire Nancy Pelosi forever,” said Richter.
Chairman Holman continues to put his own personal agenda and politics ahead of the good of the United States of America, denying his own party members to attend a fundraiser hosted in Richter’s honor this past weekend. Holman issued a strongly worded message to Republicans in Ocean County to support other candidates in November 2020, omitting Richter from his list and going as far as “imploring” his party not to attend the Richter event this past weekend.
Many Republicans in the county are now furious with Holman’s petty gripe that now involves one of the country’s top GOP prospects for U.S. Congress. It’s not the first time Holman put his own personal financial lust for wealth and importance ahead of the people he was elected to serve, but perhaps it is his most egregious act he has committed since becoming the chairman one and a half years ago.
Richter is the former CEO of global construction management firm Hill International. During his time at the company, Hill grew from a struggling family business with less than 300 employees into a successful public company with more than 4,300 employees. A lifelong Republican, Richter grew up in and has spent most of his life living and working in the Third District. He earned two bachelor’s degrees and a law degree from Penn as well as master’s degrees from Oxford and Harvard. Richter and his wife Michelle, who have been married for 20 years, are the parents of four teenage daughters.
