GOP candidate Richter takes out own wallet in race to challenge Van Drew
Democratic U.S. Rep. Jeff Van Drew may be doing all he can not to alienate his relatively pro-Trump district, but the Republican race to replace him is intensifying.
THIS WOULD BE A GOOD TIME TO DISCUSS SEXISM IN SURVIVAL SITUATIONS: “Fortgang on offense amid the ‘jurassic’ dimensions of Webber world,” by InsiderNJ’s Fred Snowflack: “Democrat Laura Fortgang came to Jay Webber’s office on Monday with dinosaurs in mind. She said Webber’s overall philosophy has morphed from just out of touch to ‘Jurassic.’ The specific purpose of the press event outside Webber’s legislative office on Littleton Road was to highlight Fortgang’s endorsement from two unions — the state chapter of the American Federation of Teachers and the Health Professionals and Allied Employees, which represents nurses and other health care workers. Beyond that, Fortgang also used the event to stress that Webber’s conservative views are out of sync with the 26th District, which includes parts of Morris, Essex and Passaic counties. To that end, Fortgang mentioned what she said was Webber’s opposition to abortion rights, gay rights, strong environmental regulations and equal pay for women.”
