Referring to a former New Jersey Governor as “Sloppy Chris Christie,” former President Donald Trump has formally endorsed Don Purdy for an important national position.

Purdy is the Chairman of the Atlantic County, New Jersey Republican Party.

Purdy is running with Janice Fields for New Jersey's two Republican National Committee positions.

Fields is currently the Somerset County Republican State Committeewoman.

Here is President Trump’s public endorsement of Purdy and Fields:

A Trump endorsement is coveted during the 2024 election cycle.

This process will be followed according to the New Jersey Republican State Committee's Constitution and By-Laws.

The Republican National Committee's Rules require that these positions are to be elected in advance of this year's Republican National Convention.

There is great geographical balance (Southern and Northern part of the state) with the Purdy and Fields ticket.

This position is for a 4-year term. It is a position of great significance with President Trump on the ballot this year and the race for New Jersey Governor next year.

There are 21 Counties in New Jersey ... each County is represented with one male and one female.

One of the current office-holders is William Palatucci, who is a very close friend with Chris Christie.

Palatucci has been in staunch opposition to President Trump, just as Christie has been.

That is not a plus in the pro-Trump environment.

Our New Jersey delegation needs to head into Milwaukee united behind President Trump and focused on one thing. WINNING in November, said Purdy, who was recently chosen to be one of President Trump's Statewide Delegates. There's just too much at stake for the future of our state and the  future of our country for us to be fighting amongst each other instead of with Biden and the Democrats - that's the message Janice and I have been hearing from everyone we talk to, said Purdy.

Purdy is a small business owner of several diverse businesses and the former Mayor of Galloway Township, New Jersey.

Janice Fields has served on the New Jersey Republican State Committee since 2014 and has served on the Bernards Township Committee in 2019. In 2021 she served as Mayor.

Don and I both served as Mayor of our respective hometowns so we know what it's like to go out there and put your name on the ballot," said Fields. "We know what our candidates up and down the ballot need to be successful and will do everything we can to work with Chairman Whatley & Co-Chairwoman Trump to secure the resources necessary to make it happen, said Fields.

Fields is the former President of the Somerset County Federation of Republican Women and a past recipient of their Millicent Fenwick Award.
