Gary Rich enters race for U.S. Senate nomination

Gary Rich

Former Monmouth County Freeholder Gary Rich has entered the race for the Republican nomination to run for U.S. Senate against Cory Booker.

Rich’s Statement of Organization was filed with the Federal Election Commission on January 22, 2020.

In a press release this afternoon, Rich spoke about the Impeachment Trial of President Donald J. Trump:

“I was happy to see the President’s team come out swinging this morning. It’s bad enough to have a fake news media broadcasting propaganda, but now the public knows exactly how much Adam Schiff lies and how hard the Democrats are trying to mislead the public.”

“I’ll be happy when this impeachment circus is over and we can focus the government on doing the business of the American people.  The president has laid out an agenda that will ensure peace and prosperity for generations to come.  All it takes is the commitment of our representatives to put it into place.”

Currently, New Jersey is not represented in the US Senate.  Our valuable seats are held hostage by the Democrat party and occupied by Bob Menendez, who is only interested only in his own self-preservation Cory Booker, who has been AWOL since he first went to Washington.

“I want to work for the agenda championed by  President Trump and bring New Jersey’s support to the US Senate”

The former freeholder is not expected to have the support on Monmouth County GOP Chairman Shaun Golden. Rich collected signatures to run against Golden for Sheriff in the 2019 primary.

“I did not file the petitions,” Rich told MMM in a phone interview. “I’ve reached out to the Chairman to try to get beyond that. I have not talked to him about my candidacy for U.S. Senate.”

Golden has yet to respond to a request for comment.

Rich told MMM that he intends to compete at the various Republican county conventions which start this week in Union County.  The Monmouth GOP nominating convention is on Saturday, February 8, 9 a.m. , at iPlayAmerica in Freehold.

    Delicious irony that the Monmouth GOP nominating convention will be held at “iPlayAmerica”…..

    America certainly is being played by a con man, snake oil salesman, abetted by cynical plutocrats and enable by a raft of useful idiots who don’t get the joke that they’re the fish at the poker table.

    to not go right in and file petitions with one’s home county, for a statewide office, whatever the prior issues.. Well, with 20 other counties, we’ll see. Be interesting to see what the other souls raise and do,to try and take on Spartacus, the magnificent ..

    There’s a saying, “if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all.”

    That said, I believe in free speech. However insults and ignorant comments get you zero credibility. But hey, if you want to look silly, you can say anything you want. The reality is that insults are all you have and you use them because you either unable to debate in the arena of ideas or cannot handle a rational debate in the arena of ideas or facts for that matter. Rousseau had a quote that fits folks like you > “Insults are the arguments employed by those who are in the wrong.”

    Agreed wholeheartedly. Insults only work when employed by the master himself, the POTUS! I enjoy certain kinds of fish myself.

    can we quit with with the childish, personal nonsense and name- calling, and get back to the TOPIC? This is about the NJ US Senate race: and, who we can find, to try and beat a really problematic guy! Honestly, grow up, make an intelligent contribution, and raise the bar, already!
