“David Richter is a fraud and his true colors are starting to show”

THIRD CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICT, NJ – Kate Gibbs’ campaign issued the following statement today in response to opponent David Richter’s latest endorsement by Former Assemblywoman Maria Rodriguez-Gregg:

“Perhaps if David Richter lived in the 3rd congressional district he would know that Maria Rodriguez-Gregg has publicly bad-mouthed President Trump and bragged about not voting for him in 2016” commented Gibbs’ Campaign Manager, Angelo Lamberto. “She also endorsed two liberal Democrats in the 8th Legislative District last fall in an attempt to defeat Assemblyman Ryan Peters and Assemblywoman Jean Stanfield. Democrats whose entire campaign was based on attacking the 2nd Amendment. Fortunately, Maria’s endorsement means as much now as it did then, which is nothing. But Richter’s embrace of that endorsement does mean something and he should have to answer for it. Why would David Richter promote the endorsement of a never-Trumper who actively worked for Democrats just last year? Pay attention Ocean County Republicans, David Richter is a fraud and his true colors are starting to show.”

When asked as a Republican woman, where does she fit in the current party with Donald Trump as its head, Rodriguez-Gregg responded: “Is it even my party anymore? It is hard being a Republican woman with the state of the party today.”

“I think it’s more than just being the only Latina Republican in the Legislature,” said Maria Rodriguez-Gregg, a Republican from Burlington County. “I think it’s my whole life experience that leads me to not being able to support him.”

“At the end of the day he’s so divisive and he has taken multiple policy positions that I’m not sure I know where he stands on the issues,” Rodriguez-Gregg told PolitickerNJ.
