Webber wins pro-life endorsement

New Jersey’s Right to Life PAC has endorsed Jay Webber for State Assembly in the 26th district GOP primary.

Webber, Assembly Minority Leader Alex DeCroce, and former Kinnelon Councilman Lawrence Casha are competing for two seats to represent the traditionally Republican Morris-Passaic district. Incumbent Joseph Pennacchio is running for an open State Senate seat.

“I am proudly pro-life and look forward to defending and supporting our shared values in Trenton,” said Webber, an attorney and former congressional aide.

He added that, if elected, he will push to end state funding for abortion clinics and introduce an amendment to the state’s constitution that would require notifying the parents of teens who undergo the procedure.

The endorsement adds to Webber’s anti-abortion credentials. He already has Florham Park pro-life leader Sean Flanagan, former president of New Jersey Right to Life and a current member of its board, on his steering committee.
