The Truth About the NJ Gubernatorial Candidates

June 7

Primary Election Day is upon us tomorrow.

Here are the facts:

Jack Ciattarelli, Phil Rizzo, and Hirsh Singh would reign in the Department of Education and curtail the sexual and cultural indoctrination happening in our public schools. All three candidates have repeatedly expressed their objection regarding controversial curriculum such as transgender diversity lessons in kindergarten, the explicit and inappropriate new Sex Ed Learning Standards, and the Critical Theory found throughout the pilot lessons developed by Garden State Equality.

All three candidates would sign the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act that would ban abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy and work to defund Planned Parenthood. In addition, they have all been outspoken in their opposition to the so-called Reproductive Freedom Act.

God is not the author of confusion…
1 Corinthians 14:33

Deceptive mailers and social media postings that claim only one candidate is the “true conservative” and the only “pro-life” candidate are not true. If any candidate claims they will sign an Executive Order banning late term abortions, that is a false promise. Such restrictions would have to be passed by the legislature. I would suggest you view the rating card from our friends at NJ Right to Life. Both Phil Rizzo and Hirsh Singh received an “A”. Jack Ciattarelli received a “B”.

The dishonesty that has been on display for months has damaged the social conservative movement. Intentional lies and mischaracterizations of fellow conservative candidates as a baseless attempt to appeal to the anger and the frustration of the grassroots should not be rewarded. A positive unifying vision rooted in conservative principles has the best chance to move New Jersey forward in the right direction.
