Tea Party Republican Ernesto Cullari today officially announced his intention to challenge U.S. Rep. Frank Pallone (D-6).
An orthopedic medical professional, Cullari has never run for public office.
“Contrary to what the Democrats and media say, the America of today is not in decline, rather it is being subjugated by cronyism, it is being held back, it is being overburdened by a political aristocracy with an extreme lust for power, which holds us all back from our true potential,” said the candidate. “I’m running to win, but I don’t desire power for myself. I yearn for a federal government that’s less powerful, so that we may all live freely.”
