The Camden County Republican Committee announced this week that it had given the line to U.S. Senate candidate Rik Mehta. Camden County joined 3 of New Jersey’s 21 counties in giving Mehta the line. In its press release the Camden County GOP called Mehta an “excellent U.S. Senate candidate ” and said he “has a keen grasp of the issues voters care about”. Let’s not forget the Camden County GOP also endorsed Vincent Squire for Camden County Freeholder in 2018 before later disavowing him.
A press release posted this morning on Insider NJ referred to Hirsh Singh as the “front-runner for U.S. Senate in 2020”. The release also called Singh “the” Republican candidate clearly forgetting that there are at least 3 other candidates in the race. The release left me wondering what Singh is the front-runner in? Front-runner in living in his parent’s basement? Front-runner in losing multiple prior elections? Front-runner in hiding from the voters (I’ve rarely heard him speak publicly nor have I heard him speak on issues important to New Jerseyans)? I’m wondering if in his next release Singh will simply skip the 2020 election and declare himself Senator?
