Running in the 9th Congressional District, GOP Rabbi Shmuley Boteach this week received a maxed out campaign contribution from House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.).
The rabbi received a check in the amount of $5,000.
“We are experiencing a great deal of momentum and will have the resources to wage a competitive campaign,” said Jason Kitchen, Shmuley campaign manager. “We are in the process of a major fundraising push this week, including a fundraiser on Thursday in Englewood, and want to secure every dollar possible before the March 31st deadline.”
Backed by the Bergen and Hudson GOP organizations, the rabbi wants to secure the Republican nomination in the 9th to run in November against the winner of the Democratic Primary.
