Republican candidate for Congress in New Jersey’s second district, Seth Grossman, says momentum is swinging his way. In a press release this morning the campaign says he raised $120,000 from roughly 1,000 small donors in the third quarter. The press release follows:
Democrat Kavanaugh Attacks Motivating Voters
MOMENTUM SWINGING TO GROSSMAN AS SMALL DONORS COME OUT IN FORCE
Somers Point, NJ, October 18, 2018 – The Democrats angered Republicans and independent voters nationwide with their disgusting attempted character assassination of US Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh and doing so awakened a sleeping giant in southern New Jersey who are now backing Seth Grossman for Congress.
Roughly 1,000 small donors contributed over $120,000 to Grossman For Congress in the campaign’s 3rd Quarter, with many indicating with accompanying messages of support that they are adamantly against Grossman’s opponent, Jeff Van Drew, and any Democrats winning in November’s midterm election.
“The momentum and support now turning out for me is incredible! It mirrors the support that Donald Trump received in 2016 – the everyday, middle class working American who for years has been ignored by the Democratic Party in Washington. They are now angry at the treatment Kavanaugh received, and they are angry that Van Drew announced that he would side with his leftwing cronies and not support Kavanaugh,” Grossman said.
“Just like with President Trump, these people are pulling out their checkbooks and sending our campaign whatever they can because they see Washington is broken and they know that I am 100% behind helping President Trump fix it. They know Democrats like Van Drew will undo the progress Trump has made with jobs, tax cuts, skyrocketing economic growth and making the nation safer, and they are supporting me with their money and their votes to keep the President’s agenda going.”
Van Drew’s disconnect with his constituents includes many of his recent legislative positions as a state senator such as siding with the Democrats voting to include illegal aliens in the 2020 federal census. That would reward sanctuary cities and states with additional political representation and federal and state funds.
Seth Grossman and Jeff Van Drew are facing off in New Jersey’s 2nd Congressional District. The seat, which has been represented by retiring U.S. Rep. Frank LoBiondo for 24 years, includes the counties of Cape May, Atlantic, Cumberland and Salem and parts of Camden, Gloucester, Burlington and Ocean counties. Donald Trump won the district by five points in the 2016 election.
