Hari Eppanapally of Livingston will be seeking the Republican nomination for congress in the 6th congressional district next Saturday at the Monmouth and Middlesex nominating conventions. His prior political experience is as an active fundraiser for Assemblyman Upendra Chivukula’s 2012 congressional run against Republican Congressman Leonard Lance in the 7th congressional district.
Eppanapply contributed $2500 to President Barack Obama’s reelection campaign.
MMM hereby endorses Eppanapally for the Democratic nomination for congress in CD-6.
Really. Eppanapally has a better chance of beating Frank Pallone in the Democratic primary than he does of beating Pallone in the general election.
The Vice President and member of the Board of The Financial Policy Council, a free market oriented non-profit think tank and policy advocate, Eppanapally would be a much better congressman than Pallone.
Pallone doesn’t understand free markets or believe in wealth creation. The people of the 6th district, New Jersey and the United States of American would be better off with Eppanapally in congress, even as a member of the Democratic Caucus. If Eppanapally really wants to be a Republican, he can change parties after he is elected to congress.
In the meantime, we urge Eppanapally to leverage his Democratic relationships to unseat Pallone, rather than crashing the Republican Party.
Eppanapally hosted a fundraiser for Chivukula’s 2012 congressional campaign in his home.
He traveled the country with Chivukula asking Democrats for money to use against Lance.
