OLD BRIDGE, NJ-  Middlesex County Freeholder Candidate Rich Castaldo released the following statement calling out former Governor Whitman over her attacks on President Trump and her comments this weekend about Republicans losing control of the House of Representatives.

“From her incessant attacks on our President, to calling for Republican’s to lose the House, it has become incredibly clear that Governor Whitman is out of touch with the today’s Republican Party.  Her attacks on Republican Congressional candidates in New Jersey and around the country show that she does not have the best interests of Republicans in mind and should not be taken seriously.  More and more it seems like she is just another member of the political elite, long past her prime, trying desperately to be relevant. 

If she truly feels this way about the Republican Party, then perhaps this is not the party for her.  I call on Governor Whitman to either stop attacking Republicans or declare herself a Democrat, and endorse the Democratic agenda of higher taxes, more regulations and open borders full stock.”
