Pro-life, pro-family social conservatives won in New Jersey this week because of your support. Family Policy Alliance of New Jersey® identified two key districts to engage thousands of Christian voters in this year’s state races. We won in both districts!
If you believe in the dignity of human life, the rights of parents to raise their children according to their beliefs, and the beauty of the traditional family, then this week’s election was a great moment of advocacy and victory!
District 1 – encompassing Cape May County and parts of Atlantic and Cumberland Counties – had a special State Senate race to fill the seat that Jeff Van Drew left behind when he was elected to the House of Representatives last year. Incumbent Senator Bob Andrzejcak and Assemblymen Bruce Land and Matthew Milam were pro-choice, fiscally moderate Democrats who were unwilling to stand up against their party leadership on vital social issues. They were challenged by a pro-life team that strongly opposes recreational marijuana and supports parental rights in education: Mike Testa for Senate and Erick Simonsen and Antwan McClellan for State Assembly. Family Policy Alliance of New Jersey was able to educate and mobilize thousands of family voters in this district last week because of your financial support. Testa, Simonsen and McClellan won by about 3,000 votes!
District 39 – encompassing parts of Bergan and Passaic County – had a hotly contested race where our good friend and pro-life champion, Assemblyman Bob Auth, was attacked weekly in the media by his challengers for his unashamed socially conservative views. In response, we contacted thousands of family-focused values voters in this district last week, giving Assemblyman Bob Auth a re-election win by just 1,900 votes!
The results of voting have started the trajectory towards a state where God is honored, religious freedom flourishes, families thrive and life is cherished.
