Another Major Endorsement for Forrester


Rare Primary Endorsement by Congressman LoBiondo Shows

Forrester is Right Candidate to Lead the Party to Victory


(West Windsor) – Citing conservative businessman Doug Forrester’s character and conviction, United States Congressman Frank LoBiondo today endorsed Forrester’s candidacy for governor. 


“I am proud to endorse my good friend Doug Forrester for governor because he’s the right man to lead our party to victory this November,” said Congressman LoBiondo.  “New Jersey is facing a crisis of confidence and we need a serious leader who has the character and conviction to clean up the mess in Trenton, and I am confident that Doug Forrester will do just that.”


“I am extremely pleased and honored to receive Congressman LoBiondo’s endorsement at this early date,” said Forrester.  “It’s clear that we need a leader who can take on the culture of corruption in Trenton, put an end to the reckless spending, waste, fraud and abuse that is costing us millions, and provide much needed relief for property taxpayers.  I am ready to take on that challenge.”

U.S. Rep. Frank A. LoBiondo has been a lifelong resident of Southern New Jersey, a successful small businessman who worked for 26 years at his family owned and operated trucking company and an active participant in numerous civic and charitable efforts. In November 1994, Frank won election as the U.S. Representative from New Jersey’s Second Congressional District and is now serving his sixth consecutive term.  Congressman LoBiondo serves on both the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee and the House Armed Services Committee.

This is the latest major endorsement for Forrester, who continues to demonstrate substantial momentum in the governor’s race.  Other recent major endorsements include: Monmouth County Sheriff Joe Oxley, Senator Peter Inverso, Assemblyman Bill Baroni, Mercer County Clerk Cathy DiCostanzo, Mercer County Republican Chairman Phil Angarone, Jr. and Salem County Republican Chairwoman Rita Shade-Simpson.
