Today, prominent Republican leaders in the legislature and the Sussex County community formally endorsed Joe Kyrillos for United States Senate. Kyrillos momentum continues statewide.
Sussex County Republican Committee Chairman Ailish Hambel said, "Gas prices are soaring, our national debt continues to rise and the U.S. Senate refuses to pass a budget. We need bold leadership in Washington to set America back on the right track, not more of the same status-quo from Bob Menendez. Americans cannot afford to continue down this path, and Sussex County residents cannot afford another six years of Bob Menendez. I am proud to support Joe Kyrillos for United States Senate."
Senator Joe Kyrillos said, "I am gratified and humbled to have the support of Chairman Hambel, my Sussex County colleagues in the legislature and so many respected leaders from Sussex County. Everything is at stake in this election year. The big government policies coming out of our nation's capital are destroying opportunities for people back home in Sussex County and throughout our beloved state. My opponent promises only more of the same: more taxes, more spending and more job-killing regulations. But as I travel the Garden State, the message is clear: New Jerseyans simply cannot afford more of the same. I look forward to being a United States Senator of which Sussex County and all New Jersey residents can be proud."
Kyrillos also received the endorsements of the following elected officials in Sussex County: Senator Steve Oroho, Assemblyman Gary Chiusano, Assemblywoman Alison Littell McHose, County Sheriff Mike Strada, County Clerk Jeff Parrott, Freeholder Director Phillip R. Crabb, Freeholder Parker Space, Freeholder Rich Vohden, Freeholder Susan Zellman and Freeholder Rich Zeoli.
Kyrillos has also been endorsed by Governor Chris Christie and the Atlantic, Bergen, Burlington, Camden, Cape May, Cumberland, Gloucester, Hudson, Hunterdon, Mercer, Middlesex, Monmouth, Ocean, Somerset and Union County Republican Organizations.
