NRCC pounces on Hughes on Day 1

The National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) launched a new website and targeted search ads today against CD2 candidate Bill Hughes, Jr., who’s challenging U.S. Rep. Frank LoBiondo (R-2).

The website, which can be seen here, highlights Hughes Jr.’s career as a defense attorney.

“Bill Hughes Jr. has spent the past decade making big money representing some of the worst criminals in New Jersey – whether it be a dirty cop, an accused human trafficker, corrupt public official, a mobster, or even a child pornographer,” said NRCC Spokesman Ian Prior. “In fact, Hughes Jr. even boasts on his law firm website about all the light sentences that he helped get for convicted criminals. The choice in this election will be very clear – a bipartisan leader and public servant like Congressman LoBiondo, or a criminal defense lawyer like Hughes Jr. who specialized in standing up for the rich, powerful, and criminally corrupt.” NRCC pounces on Hughes on Day 1
