VINELAND –Sam Fiocchi, who is running against Ocean County’s Republican establishment candidate in New Jersey’s 2nd Congressional District is rallying Republicans to get behind him in the June primary election.
Fiocchi is hoping to defeat Hirsh Singh, a South Jersey engineer of Indian descent in Jun and hopes to be the Republican who will face off against favored Democrat, Jeff Van Drew.
Today Republican candidate for Congress in New Jersey’s 2nd Congressional District, former Assemblyman Sam Fiocchi, announced he has earned the endorsement of Greenwich Township Mayor George W. Shivery, Jr.
“I’ve known Sam Fiocchi for a number of years, as a freeholder, an assemblyman and a friend and was proud to have his support a number of years ago when I ran for Assembly,” Mayor George W. Shivery, Jr. said. “I was disappointed Sam wasn’t awarded the county line but am hopeful that, with the recent removal of a candidate from the ballot, Sam will be awarded that line.”
“While there are quality candidates running in this primary I will be knocking on doors for Sam Fiocchi.” Shivery continued, “He is the only candidate in this race with the proven ability to beat Team Van Drew, when Sam won his assembly race Van Drew’s name was on the signs, on the literature, in the mailers and he spoke on behalf of Sam’s opponents.”
“As a hunter, gun owner and president of a gun club in the 2nd congressional district, the rights of legal gun owners are important to me,” Shivery said. “Sam has a track record of supporting the 2nd Amendment and I am confident he will continue to do so as a member of Congress. I’m ready to get out there, knock on doors and do whatever it takes to help Sam Fiocchi win this primary election.”
