Turkavage officially announcing Senate bid

A former FBI agent says he will officially announce his plans to seek the Republican Party’s nomination this weekend in challenging U.S. Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.)

Robert “Turk” Turkavage plans to official announce his intention to run during the Middlesex County Women’s Republican Club dinner Sunday. The former federal agent had been mulling a run for weeks.

Last month, Turkavage filed notice of intent to run with the Bergen County Republican Organization.

Turkavage said he plans to unveil five proposals to tackle the national debt during his announcement.

 The news comes a day after Ramapo College Finance Professior Murray Sabrin announced in an email he’s seeking the Republican nomination.
