Kim Guadagno Awarded Republican Party Slogan In Sussex County

Today, Kim Guadagno announced her campaign has been awarded the use of the official Sussex County Republican Party slogan on the June 6th primary ballot in the key Republican county.

“Our campaign is leading in endorsements, fundraising and polls because voters are drawn to our plan and vision for a more affordable New Jersey,” said Lieutenant Governor Kim Guadagno. “The media and pundits may believe Phil Murphy can buy the governor’s office with his Goldman Sachs millions, but our campaign is going to win because we are focused on issues that will make our state better for everyday working New Jerseyans. With such strong grassroots energy behind us, I know we will win the June primary and defeat Phil Murphy in November.”

“As a working parent and military mom, Kim will make New Jersey better for families in Sussex County as governor,” said Sussex County Republican Party Chairman Jerry Scanlan. “Her plan to audit Trenton, reform the school funding formula and establish an independently-elected attorney general will set the right priorities in Trenton and make our government more accountable to the people. Sussex County Republicans have a choice, but I believe are going to turn out in force to support Kim’s campaign because she is our best hope to stop Phil Murphy from taking the governor’s office and imposing his high tax, big government agenda, which is something none of us can afford to let happen.”

According to current data, Sussex County is home to more registered Republicans than Hunterdon County and is one of six counties where Republicans enjoy a voter registration advantage over Democrats. Guadagno has earned the official Republican Party line or slogan in counties with 70% of the Republican vote: Atlantic, Bergen, Camden, Cape May, Cumberland, Gloucester, Hudson, Monmouth, Morris, Ocean, Passaic, Salem, Sussex and Warren counties.

A recent Farleigh Dickinson University Public Mind Poll showed Guadagno leading the Republican primary field by nearly 20 points.
