The 2017 Republican gubernatorial primary campaign season officially kicked off on February 6th with the Morris County Young Republicans’ debate. Lt. Governor Kim Guadagno was not present and neither was Jack Ciattarelli who announced that he would be scaling back his campaign while he undergoes cancer treatment.
Rullo struck first at New Jersey’s recent gas tax, claiming Guadagno has been silent on the tax, branding the Lt. Governor as “Silent Kim”. Rullo also criticized New Jersey’s sanctuaries and illegal immigration.
“We so are grateful for the 150+ who attended, the media who covered the event, our sponsors who made it possible, and the candidates who came: Joseph Rullo and Steve Rogers,” the MCYR said, “Our moderators Michael Crispi and Anthony J Somma Jr. did an outstanding job! This was a great way to kick off the 2017 GOP Primary.”
