TOMS RIVER, NJ – David Richter secured the endorsement of President Donald J. Trump this week, signaling that the seat for the third congressional district in New Jersey is in play and winnable. Richter is facing off against liberal Democrat Andy Kim, a staunch ally of Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi. Kim criticized the endorsement.
“Trump just endorsed my opponent David Richter who supports gutting the law that protects people with preexisting conditions,” Kim, who turned from radical leftist revolutionary to U.S. Congressman. “Help me fight back.”
Richter shrugged off Kim’s pandering to the far left.
“The stakes in an election have never been greater. Not only do we need to re-elect President Trump, but we also need to retire Nancy Pelosi forever,” Richter said. “Let’s retake a Republican majority in the House starting right here in NJ-03.”
With the endorsement of President Trump, the ball is now in the court of Ocean County GOP Chairman Frank B. Holman, III to pledge his support to Richter. Holman previously endorsed Richter, but has since been boycotting Richter’s campaign fundraisers, including one hosted by the Ocean County GOP. Holman has given the Richter campaign the cold shoulder in recent weeks and even threatened local and county officials to stop attending events in honor of Richter. A letter sent by Holman to the Ocean County GOP Committee and party donors omitted Richter from the list of candidates supported by the county.
