Palatucci shows Rik Mehta around the Golden Gala

Shaun Golden and U.S. Senate candidate Rik Mehta at the Golden Gala

Bill Palatucci, New Jersey’s Republican National Committeeman, was showing U.S. Senate candidate Rik Mehta around the Golden Era Gala on Friday night, which surprised me because Hirsh Singh has been touting the Republican National Commiteeman’s endorsement for the nomination to take on Senator Cory Booker for months.

“I’m trying to get Eli Manning to run,” I told Palatucci when he asked me if I knew Mehta.  Bill laughed and without missing a beat said, “Is that going to happen?  Just it case it doesn’t, you should know Rik Methta.”

“I like Rik a lot. We’ve met several times and I’m impressed with his work ethic and commitment to the race,” Palatucci said.  “We’re blessed with a lot a great candidates this year willing to run for the U.S. Senate.”

I like Mehta too, but I’m waiting to hear what Eli decides before making any endorsements.

    did a great intro mailer. Hope he gets the nod. I think he’s a good candidate. Has been trying for quite a while. Has the guts to take on a tough race.
