NJGOP Ready To Deliver House Majority
 
 
Trenton, NJ – The New Jersey Republican State Committee is hitting the ground running in the 2020 general election. With three Democrat incumbents occupying Trump districts and another in a <1% Clinton district, the NJGOP is ready to play a “make or break” role in delivering a Republican majority.
 
Early last year, it was reported that the GOP was working to plot a “blue-state invasion in November“, and the NJGOP looks forward to partnering with the RNC to deploy a sophisticated and well funded field effort. 
 
In April, a Monmouth University Poll found that Democrats are facing a tough road in the five most competitive seats that helped contribute to 2018’s “blue wave”. According to Monmouth,  voters give Republican candidates (46%) a slight edge over Democrat candidates (45%) in the five most competitive districts (i.e., CDs 2, 3, 5, 7, 11). This time two years ago, Democrats held an aggregate 7- point edge in these districts (49% to 42%).
 
“The NJGOP is ready to carry our momentum from the most successful legislative elections in 28 years into this year’s House races,” said NJGOP Chairman Steinhardt. “The New Jersey Democrat delegation has taken a dangerous turn to the left, pursuing a socialist agenda and an erroneous impeachment crusade. Polling indicates they’re turning off voters and Congressman Van Drew’s flip to the Republican party proves that common sense people are hungry for new leadership.”

“Congressman Van Drew’s rejection of Nancy Pelosi’s agenda is emblematic of the trend in this state. Voters want real leadership that results in solutions that move New Jersey forward. We look forward to supporting Congressman Van Drew and helping him with a smooth re-election.”
 
NJGOP Chairman Steinhardt Statement on NJ-3
 
“NJ-3 and South Jersey need a serious Congressional Representative and Andy Kim simply isn’t getting it done. His weak leadership has put the mission of the Joint Base in jeopardy and his liberal agenda is out of step with this district.”
Donald Trump won this district by 6.3% and Andy Kim votes with Nancy Pelosi 97% of the time.

“Congressman Chris Smith is a leader in Washington and an exceptional representative for his district. He’s been a pioneer in the fight against human trafficking and the NJGOP looks forward to our partnership with his campaign and re-election.”
 
NJGOP Chairman Steinhardt Statement on NJ-5
 
“Josh Gottheimer is a liberal wearing a moderate’s mask. He had a chance to be a difference maker in Washington, but he squandered it pursuing a partisan impeachment probe. All the fundraising in the world can’t hide Josh Gottheimer’s loyalty to Nancy Pelosi.”
 
Donald Trump won this district by 1.1% and Josh Gottheimer votes with Nancy Pelosi 96% of the time.
 
NJGOP Chairman Steinhardt Statement on NJ-7
 
“Tom Kean is one of the best Congressional challengers in the country and every public poll to date shows him leading One-Term Tom Malinowski. Tom Kean has a strong record of bi-partisan accomplishments such as creating new economies, lowering the cost of prescription drugs and laying the foundation for the Gateway Tunnel. Tom Malinowski campaigned as a moderate, but he has voted to kill thousands of jobs in his district and deferred to Washington party bosses over his constituents at every turn.”
 
Donald Trump lost this district by 1% and Tom Malinowski votes with Nancy Pelosi 97% of the time. 
 
NJGOP Chairman Steinhardt Statement on NJ-11
 
“Rosemary Becchi has the background to make a real difference in New Jersey’s affordability crisis. Her opponent, Mikie Sherrill promised to be an independent voice for her district, but somehow has a nearly identical voting record with the House Speaker from San Francisco. NJ-11 deserves better.”
 
Donald Trump won this district by 1% and Mikie Sherrill votes with Nancy Pelosi 99% of the time.
