Boteach: ‘Vote for the man with the beard’

Rabbi Shmuley Boteach, Republican Congressional candidate in New Jersey’s 9th district, today released a web video jokingly asking constituents to vote for “the man with the beard.”

“As we enter into Rosh Hashana, I wish each and every one of you a very happy and sweet new year infused with God’s light, joy and blessings,” Shmuley says in the YouTube video. “May this year be prosperous for all of you – perhaps slightly more for us Republicans – but to you Democrats as well. May God bless each and every one of you, may there be peace on earth, and may this great nation live up to its fullest potential – especially the innate male potential to sport facial hair.”

Boteach is running against U.S. Rep. Bill Pascrell (D-9).
