Assemblywoman Caroline Casagrande (R-Colts Neck) and Assemblyman Declan O’Scanlon (R-Little Silver) have endorsed newspaper publisher Diane Gooch for the GOP nomination for Congress in New Jersey’s sixth district. Gooch has the backing of the Monmouth County GOP organization in her bid to unseat U.S. Rep. Frank Pallone (D-Long Branch). She faces Highlands Mayor Anna Little in the Republican primary.
“Diane is the best person to make the case in defending the American Dream because she is a product of it. Her experiences creating jobs and working in business, both big and small, give her a perspective on our economic challenges that very few in Washington seem to understand” said Casagrande. “Diane brings a sincere voice and new face than the politics as usual that the people are tired of.”
O’Scanlon says that voters are frustrated with one-party rule in Washington.
The contrast between a private citizen versus a career politician who toes the party line 99.2% of the time and has fashioned himself as a Washington insider gives the people a clear choice in this election,” O’Scanlon said.
