Republican Anne Estabrookannounced today that outgoing U.S. 7th District Rep. Mike Ferguson will serve ascampaign chairmanfor Estabrook's U.S. Senate run.
"Congressman Ferguson brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to my campaign," Estabrook said in a release. "It's no secret that our state faces an affordability crisis. With Mike's help, I will address the issues that matter most to New Jersey's working families by supporting fiscally responsible policies like spending cuts and fighting to keep more of their tax dollars in their pockets."
Ferguson is serving his fourth term and serves on the House Energy and Commerce Committee. Late last year he announced his retirement from Congress at the end of his current term.
"I know firsthand that we need to rein in spending and support tax cuts in Washington,"Ferguson said in the release"Anne is the right candidate at the right time to bring a much needed businesslike approach to Washington and address the serious financial issues facing our national economy."
