David Richter Leaves CD-2 for CD-3, Sights Now Set on Kim
What we have been forecasting is now official.
David Richter has left the New Jersey 2nd Congressional District Republican Primary race and has endorsed Congressman Jeff Van Drew, R-2.
Richter has now set his sights on CD-3, the seat that is currently held by Democrat Andy Kim.
Kim narrowly won the seat in the 2018 mid-term elections in a squeaker.
Richter has a good chance to win the Republican Nomination, then making him a legitimate and formidable challenger to Kim.
Richter’s first move is a very smart one. He has hired one of the finest political strategists in America, Bill Stepien. Stepien is brilliant, respected and he has a phenomenal political/electoral pedigree and great instincts. He’s a winner.
Stepien is a current senior political strategist for United States President Donald Trump and a former high-level talent for former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie.
Christie was very influential in the Richter flip to the 3rd Congressional District. This move can mean another Republican pick-up this November 3, 2020.
This leaves only Bob Patterson left challenging Van Drew in the June 2, 2020 Republican Primary.
