TOMS RIVER, NJ – Everyone in the sports world knows Tommy John, especially if you’re a pitcher. He’s the New York Yankees legend whose name is synonymous with hope and rebuilding, especially after you’ve been through a tough ordeal. U.S. congressional candidate David Richter has been through a tough political ordeal after he overcame every challenge put before him by his naysayers to win the 2020 nomination in the 2020 Republican primary ballot. Richter will be near the top of the ticket here in Ocean County on the Donald Trump line in the November election.
Now, Tommy John has announced Richter is the guy Ocean and Burlington County needs out of the bullpen to reverse the two year term of radical liberal Democrat Andy Kim. Kim has been throwing his constituents curve balls during his rookie term in Congress.
After running on a platform where he promised not to fall in line with dangerous anti-Trump Democrats in Washington, D.C., Kim’s first curveball was to announce his full support of Nancy Pelosi for speaker of the house.
Next, Kim threw a pitch high and inside to his constituents, voting to impeach President Trump, despite an overwhelming sentiment in his district against the impeachment.
Throughout his rookie season, leftist Kim has thrown whatever junk he can muter up against Trump, voting against the President throughout his two years in office.
Kim has had a consistent rookie year in congress, a strong, solid left bat, who came off the bench several times for team manager, Nancy Pelosi. Kim delivered plenty of clutch hits for Pelosi during the season and is now seen as one of the rising stars in Pelosi’s rookie bullpen.
Now, Republicans and Yankees superstar Tommy John say it’s time to make a trip to the bullpen and put David Richter in the game to turn things around for CD-3. Due to Governor Murphy’s longer than anticipated locked down and for many small business owners and families, it’s now the bottom of the ninth inning and they’re down by a lot.
David Richter, Republican nominee for Congress in New Jersey’s Third District, announced today that he has received the endorsement of former New York Yankee pitcher Tommy John.
“I stand with David Richter who is a proud Republican running for Congress in the Third District in New Jersey. David supports our military, our veterans and their families. He will fight to defend and not defund our law enforcement. This is vitally important to every American citizen,” said John.
John pitched for six teams over a 26-year career in Major League Baseball from 1963 to 1989. In addition to the Yankees, he pitched for the Cleveland Indians, Chicago White Sox, Los Angeles Dodgers, California Angels and Oakland Athletics. John was also a four-time MLB All-Star.
“I’d like to thank Tommy for joining me in standing up for our law enforcement community and for endorsing my candidacy for Congress. The differences between me and my opponent Andy Kim could not be clearer. Kim belongs to the party that wants to defund law enforcement and stop them from protecting our communities. I believe we should be strengthening the bond between law enforcement and the communities they serve. That’s why my campaign launched our “Defend Don’t Defund” initiative and that is why I have promised to always stand with our law enforcement community,” Richter said.
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.
